Sawtry

The walk today started at the car park in Sawtry and the Fenland Ramblers were joined by other members from near by rambler groups.  Our number today was twenty, a good sized group who tackled the walk at a good pace for today’s 7 mile walk.

The weather was good with a warm wind blowing as the walk took us beside ploughed fields and woodland paths. Lunch was taken by the church and the retreat house.

A quick stop by a wheel barrow was made to select a few apples (suitable for eating) at a house where there was a variety of windfalls. The paths throughout were good and very dry with a few steep slopes to walk.

An enjoyable walk and good conversation including a mention of the Whittlesey Straw Bear festival ( to be held on January 14th 2012 ) as we drove through the town on our way to Sawtry.
