Today we had a good, invigorating, 5 mile walk led by Sue and Jem from The Bell Inn at East Langton in what could be described as blustery and unsettled weather.
First, 5 new people were welcomed and introduced, bringing the total number of walkers today to 33 – a large group.
I learnt that there is more than one Langton! We started from East Langton and walking along the Leicestershire Round took us east to Thorpe Langton, then north to near Stonton Wyville. After a short stretch along a road and crossing a stream.
Leg over when not necessary!
We then made our way across a large ‘bumpy’ field with sheep up to Church Langton church tower landmark.
It was pretty going through the village past the church and war memorial, both with daffodil shows,

Then back to East Langton past the cricket ground.
The Leicestershire countryside is open and expansive and on one hand this allowed us, at times, to view practically the whole of our route, on the other hand the March winds did sometimes whip across the rolling hills.
The Bell Inn proved to be spacious and welcoming with some good food and hospitality. Four other members of the group joined us. It would be nice to return and perhaps sit on one of the tables in the front garden, if the weather allowed. Thanks to Sue and Jem for organising and leading the walk.
