Saturday September 2nd 2017 Walk Report.

Seven people and Patrick the dog started the 6.5 mile walk from Rockingham to Gretton and back.It was a lovely sunny morning.
We crossed the main Rockingham road and took a walk through a quaint village close to the open fields with scenic views of the Welland valley to the left of us all the way to a steep incline up the field path leading into Gretton.
There were beautiful views of the Welland valley and villages all around.Also Rockingham castle
on the hill in the distance.

We found Gretton Recreation ground and had our lunch stop picnic on the seats there.

After that we carried on with our walk, with blackberry picking, lanes, woodland and some undefined paths (where
we needed Jem's help with his G.P.S.) until we we crossed a railway line and joined the return path to  Rockingham again.
Some went in the tearoom there for a well deserved cup of tea and scone.
Thanks to Judith for organising andl leading the walk and for providing this report
