Geddington - Brigstock via Clay Dick, and back

With Marta, along Clay Dick lane to Brigstock. Firm underfoot because frozen. Sunny, blue sky. About 9 miles, surprisingly.

Through Geddington village to the road towards the Chase. When you get to the end, there's a small fenced-off yard. Turn right along the bridleway, Clay Dick,  which takes you all the way to a surfaced road - Dusthill Road, which leads to Brigstock, past Chase Farm, which was very muddy - lots of building work going on. Then Windrush Farm, where the first of   two footpaths goes off to the right. Ignore these, but take a footpath to the left, through a field with chickens - the path is clearly marked and there are gates.  You turn left round the cricket pavilion, and follow the path out of the cricket field to Bridge Street. The Bridge crosses Harpers Brook. We went along, turned right on High Street, and went to buy sandwiches from the Co-op.
