Around Oxborough (not Oxburgh Hall)

I donned full walking gear for this walk as the snow had melted, it had rained the night before, and everywhere was full of puddles and slippery mud. As it happened, we were on roads for the most part but still got my walking trouser bottoms muddy.

DB and E without their leggings on, luckily, despite the very cold wind and grey clouds, it didn't rain or snow until after we finished:
Walking back up a road from Caldecote Farm, opposite the remains of St. Mary's Church which we couldn't find:
Pigs having lunch:
Snowdrops near a bridge (poo-sticks were done) coming into Gooderstone:
Statue of some chap stood in the grounds of Bedingfield Arms, no name on it but many guesses by visitors suggest some pop star or the other from the 60's:
We turned right here to get back to where we had parked, St. John's Oxborough I believe:
We walked for 1 hour and 45 minutes and 4.5 miles. We were glad to changed clothes and shoes and go for lunch at The Carpenter's Arms at East Winch on the A47, lovely food but such slow service unfortunately.
