Hello. It's been a nice day for a walk, plenty of sunshine though a bit windy on exposed areas with no shelter. It stayed dry, and the ground was not wet, so it was easy going, until we got to a ploughed field with very deep furrows. Our starting point was All Saints Church in Misterton, a few miles west of Gainsborough.
A new monument has been installed since I was last here. Paul is setting up his GPS in his phone.
We followed the canal for almost six miles, it was a long straight stretch passing under six bridges. It then took a sharp left turn, underneath the A631 and went into the Drakeholes Tunnel. At this point we had to take the footpath to the right, and cross over a minor road, and pick the canal up as it came out the other side.
Another stretch of canal walking, just as we passed under a bridge at Wiseton we found some people filming, it's amazing what you come across. They were very friendly and posed for a photograph. They didn't know where the film would end up, first it was going to be shown at film festivals.
Then it was quite a long trek across fields, past Clayworth Woodhouse and Beckingham Wood, cross over the A631 and take a track to Walkeringham. This is the Parish Church of St Mary Magdalen.
Relax time now so I'll say goodnight.
