Barrowden & Wakerley Great Wood

Today 12 ramblers took part in the walk which although listed as 9 and a half miles was only 8. The 5 members of the Fenland group were joined by 7 from other local groups ( Stamford).

The day started warm and sunny and continued like this for the whole route.The circular route took in Laxton Hall and the woods. There was very little shade along the way and very little breeze.

The terrain was slightly hilly compared to the flat landscape of the Fens. A good walk with views of the viaduct and Church travelling beside the corn crops and 2 crossed between the cornfields.
