Geddington to Brigstock via Clay Dick

 Thursday 27th January 2022. With Maureen - 8 miles. We set off just as the drizzle stopped, and returned in bright winter sunshine.

We parked on Wood Lane, walked to the Community garden and followed the track leading right. Very straightforward along Clay Dick track to Brigstock Dusthill Lane.

Pause for a scone and coffee near the cricket club, then returned.
