Thursday 3rd October 2019 Walk Report.

Seventeen KDRC members plus new walkers Margaret and Anthea met at The Wollaston Inn on a bright autumnal morning. 

Heading out of Wollaston on a narrow path between houses we soon encountered five very handsome alpacas and three large grunty pigs. 

Downhill through Wollaston Cricket Club grounds and safely crossing the busy A509 the next obstacle was a recently ploughed muddy field obliterating our rightful footpath. 

Onwards and upwards through a soggy low growing rape field (more like young cabbages!) we soon reached our highest point with a marvellous panoramic view of Grendon and surrounding countryside.

Entering Grendon and down through the village, stopping for a Roger (sorry, Banana! ) break at The Half Moon,

 We headed back towards Wollaston over several stiles. Eventually entering Strixton through a field of spritely sheep. Also met en route were some Shetland ponies and a young lady taking her horse for a walk.

Then a walk through the woods we emerged again into our muddy field and re-crossed the A509. Re-acquaintance with alpacas and pigs it was time to get our snouts in the trough for an enjoyable lunch and welcome drink. 

Well done newcomers Margaret and Anthea and all members for completing six miles, numerous stiles, multiple kissing gates and thousands of soggy cabbages!!!

Thanks to Paul B for organising and leading this walk and providing this report and some of the photographs.

Thanks to Lou L, Richard G for acting as back marker at various times.

Additional pictures were supplied by Caroline C.
