Belton in Rutland

Today saw a small group of six from our area meet up at Belton in Rutland for the planned 8 and a half mile walk.

As we set off the early fog lifted and the sun shone during this autumnal walk.

Due to some of the fields being very wet and muddy meant that we walked around the edge of some fields and this extended our planned distance.

Our lunch stop was taken on the picnic table at Launde Abbey a retreat rededicated by the Bishop of Peterborough and The Bishop of Leicester in the presence?? of?? Prince Charles . We also saw the information on a Ha Ha wall. ( see picture)

Despite this the walk was thoroughly enjoyable the the autumn colours clearly visible.?? If others plan to do this walk the rout was up and down several hills, a change from the flat lands of the Fenland area.
