Thursday 31st October Wak Report.



On a beautiful clear sunny autumn day 31 members set off for a much adapted walk, as flooding on Stamford Green meant major re-routing (or wearing flippers and  wetsuits) .

Sign of Autumn in this beautiful picture of a tree in its Autumnal colours.



 

Leaving the village where there many old stone built houses we crossed the A43 onto good footpaths towards Wothorpe Hall.


 

Then using the bridle path we went along higher ground to the old A1 crossed this to follow the walls of Burghley estate. Turning West into a track then South to use meadow paths looking towards Stamford.



We stopped for a break then turned West using more tracks, a bridge under the A1 and woodland fringes to take us back below Wothorpe Hall.








We then used our early route in reverse to get to the village and a warm welcome at the Blue Inn and a very good lunch.

 

Leaders Margaret and  Dorothy plus valuable support from high vis wearers to get safely across the busy main roads.

 

( Sad news that Caroline C had broken her leg this morning).


Thanks to Margaret B and Dorothy W for organising and leading what proved to be a very popular walk. Thanks to Margaret for providing this report.

Pictures were provided by Julie S and Paul B.
