Walk 24/2012 – Newnham

Sunday 18th November 2012

There was a slight twist to arrangements this week, as due to an administrative error, we advertised a walk from Tealby in Lincolnshire but actually did a walk from Newnham near Daventry.

After recent poor weather, it was great to have a brisk sunny day with blue skies. It was a bit soggy underfoot in places though.

The most interesting part of the walk was the northern section passing through the grounds of Fawsley Hall dating from the 7th century. The grounds boast an influence from Capability Brown and contain some magnificent trees.

After completing our 12 mile walk, we retired to The Romer Arms which conveniently was just where we had parked.
