Our September walk was led by Vanessa starting from Hoton. Named the "Blackberry Walk" due to the amount of fruit consumed and gathered, we passed by Prestwold Hall before walking through Burton on the Wolds, Walton on the Wolds and Wymeswold with many good long distance views along the way. A most enjoyable nine miles in an area that we don't often visit.
