25 members met in the car park of the Manor House Hotel in Alconbury on a bright sunny breezy day for a five mile walk.
A notable feature of the car park is a curiously carved tree as per the pictures below.
During the pre-walk briefing Jem C said that as would be crossing the Great North Road we would have be vigilant however not one stage coach was to be seen during our crossing.
The route took us close to the church and some attractive houses. as pictures below.
The route was good flat walking mostly mostly on arable land where much post harvest activity was seen.
A couple of curious sheep came to greet us and one pushed its head through the wire fencing and got stuck, luckily Julie S came to the rescue.
A herd of cattle found us interesting too and trotted over to investigate.
During the banana break the opportunity was taken for a group picture.
We were joined on the way back by a group of about 15 ramblers from the Peterborough Club who also lunched at the Manor House Hotel where the food proved to be excellent.
Thanks to Sue and Jem C for organising and leading this walk in pastures new for most participants.
Thanks to Caroline C for providing this report and pictures.
Thanks also to Julie S for rescuing the sheep
