Stiffkey and Cockthorpe

Will we beat the rain and will the path be better than when the leaders recce’d the walk?

16 enthusiastic ramblers began from the car park where geese were feeding on the marshes.

We followed the coastal path to Morston where we had our first stop for a cup of tea. What a lovely spot and seats as well.

From here we turned inland to Cockthorpe  Lunch was taken by the woods and the sky was looking like rain would fall shortly. Would we make it back in the dry?

As we walked through the village of Stiffkey the rain started to fall; just after we noticed the sign for the height of the 1912 flood. With not far to go we continued to walking with the rain falling now.

We did get slightly wet but a visit to the garden centre tea room on our return route dried us off nicely.
