Saturday 13th April Walk Report.



On Saturday 13 April, 22 of us had been expected to walk, under Dorothy W’s leadership, some five miles from Easton on the Hill. Regrettably, closure of the A43 at Weldon made some journeys more complicated but people who eventually  made it to the walk enjoyed themselves on a sunny morning. 

We were delighted to see bluebells and new lambs as we walked briskly on our way down to Stamford.











We then crossed the railway line at the approved crossing point.






Then we passed under the A1 road through the park where the last battle between Boadicea and the Romans took place and is marked by a plaque.





                                     Fierce Iceni dog guarding ford.

                         


We than had our banana break.










After banana break we passed this imposing residence on the outskirts of Stamford.




 Then we climbed up through fields and woods, where the trees were covered in new bright green leaves.




After passing under the A! yet again we passed this des res sat in glorious isolation.





 Then past a meandering stream to the intriguing ruins of Wothorpe Towers.




 Our route then took us along a field track to the A43 and back to a jolly good lunch, as ever, at the Blue Bell in Easton.


Thanks to Dorothy W for organising and leading this walk and to Julie S for acting as back marker and providing photographs.

Thanks also to Celia S for providing this report.
