Christmas Walk and Lunch Report from Saturday 10th December.



27 walker set out from Great Cransley for our Christmas walk. Our route took us via Cransley Wood and the old quarry railway line then on to Loddington returning over some testing fields to Great Cransley. The weather stayed dry till we got back to the Red Lion at Broughton where we were joined some additional members for an excellent seasonal lunch which was most ably organised by Sue C.
The service from the staff was excellent and to use the old phrase " a good time was had by all".
Thanks to Gloria for leading the walk and to Linda for acting as back marker.
Don't forget the New year walk on Monday the 2nd January 2017from the Stag's Head at Maidwell, meeting by 10.15 to order lunch.

Walk Report for Thursday 1st December.



In spite of the initially cold conditions 22 walkers gathered in the car park of the Axe and Compasse for a very pleasant walk in what turned out to be almost Spring like conditions with brilliant sunshine.
The route took us through the village then across the fields to Denford.
From here we crossed the River Nene to join the old Nene Valley railway line from Northampton to Peterborough.Part way along the line we stopped for a very enjoyable banana break on an old bridge over the river tempered only by a chilly breeze.
We then continued along the line leaving at Woodford Mill Tearoom then back via Kinewell Lake to the pub where an excellent lunch was enjoyed by all.
Thanks to John for leading the walk and to Julie for acting as back marker.
The next Thursday walk will be from The Griffin's Head at Mears Ashby and seasonal refreshments will be offered part way round Sywell Reservoir so please bring a mug or a cup for some warming cheer.

Saturday 19th November Walk Report.



A somewhat reduced party of 5 set off from Kettering to Market Harborough by train and in a change to the advertised programme as the say on TV they did not walk back to Kettering but walked to Weston by Welland in fine weather and with fantastic views to be seen.
Lunch was taken at The Wheel and Compass at Weston which according to our correspondent offers terrific value. The omelette with fries and salad at four pounds was such a bargainn that some were tempted to have apple crumble ( yum yum to again quote our correspondent).
The best part of lunch was the round of drinks bought by Jem whose generosity was the result of finding a £20 note in a hedge en route!
They then returned to Harborough giving a walk of 10.5 miles in total and caught the train back to Kettering.
Thanks to Steven for leading the walk and to our food correspondent Julie for providing the report.
