In cooler weather today 12 members started at the Church at Woodnewton to begin the 6 and a half mile walk .

??We walked through the village past the pub?? and several cottages with thatched roofs to begin the walk proper along?? the side of ploughed fields, uncut crops?? to the village pub at Apethorpe where we stopped for lunch on the grass and then into the pub and shop.

As we walked we saw several red kites in flight often too far away for a picture, but finally managed to get one. In the hedge rows we found numerous butterflies blues and white ones?? including one called the gate keeper. Walking around the field we did find some hilly areas and took several drink stops as the weather got hotter?? with no rain.

When we returned to the Church a visit to the grave of Coco the clown was made as an ending to the walk.
