I left the road and followed the footpath up the fields, there are gentle rolling hills around here, nothing too strenuous. This path goes through the middle of the field. Next to the wooden finger post is a smaller concrete post with the name Godfrey on it. I'm not sure what that means, maybe it's some kind of memorial for Godfrey who liked walking there. Someone had plonked a wooly hat on top of it.
Here is another field with the path going straight through it. The kind farmer has run his tractor over it, just so us walkers can find our way. You would think the path would be round the edge, but no, the signpost says it goes diagonally across.
Coming into Worlaby I saw this fountain, the date carved into the stone above it said 1874. It's a shame that there was no water, I decided not to toss a coin into it and make a wish.
From Barnetby I was walking along the side of the railway line towards Melton Ross, when I saw a dodgy looking bloke lurking. I thought it a bit odd that he should be just hanging around doing nothing, his bag on the ground next to him.
So nosey me said hello and asked him what he was waiting for. It turned out that he was a train spotter, from Reading, which is over 200 miles away. My goodness they are keen aren't they. He told me he was waiting to take a photo of a goods train because that particular make was becoming quite rare, and in a few years there wouldn't be many left. Well each to their own I suppose.
As I got back onto the road there was two more trainspotters on the bridge, I asked them where they were from. Sheffield, they said. Ah well, not quite so far away.
I have to remember that the days getting shorter, and I still want to pack as much as I can into them. The sun had gone and it was becoming overcast, best not push my luck, time to head home. I got back to the car at 5.45pm and needed to put the headlights on to drive the 13 miles home. Glad I have a bowl of home made soup to warm up in the microwave.
Today I have walked 14.77 miles, getting back into the swing of it now. I must keep it up through the winter months, so I don't seize up. Back to dog walking tomorrow.
