Coxford & Broomsthorpe

We had to park on the side of the road in front of houses to begin this walk. We headed towards Manor Farm then turned right. A whole bank of Snowdrops awaited us:
 Sunny day but bitingly cold wind:
The local church, simple and sweet:
Down a lovely grassy lane:
Beautiful countryside, we were warming up now:
In the distance we could see the remains of St. Mary's Augustinian Priory, whose stones had been robbed after the dissolution by the Townshend family to build their new house:
Eventually we got back to the car, boots covered in mud. We had only walked around 4 miles and taken 1.30 hours to do so but E., was still recovering from Norovirus and us from the weekend of the wedding. That's our excuses anyway and we are sticking to them.

For lunch, we drove to Sculthorpe Mill for sandwiches and a drink.
