It’s been so long since I wrote one of my ‘Sunday Drive’ posts (May in fact) that I’d forgotten I was actually writing them! So I thought it was high time I resurrected the series – the idea being that they give me an outlet to share some of our shorter adventures.
As it was the 1st of September and the official first day of Autumn, last Sunday saw us marking the occasion – not by going for a drive, but for a lovely walk around the village of Brinklow and the rolling Warwickshire countryside.
At only six miles, This relatively short walk is one of my favourites – it feels like a real adventure. Starting off in the magnificent earthworks of the Norman Brinkow Castle, it takes you along quiet country lanes, along canals, across fields, over and under a railway and through a Culvert and ending, as you might have guessed, in a rather nice little pub. Tt really feels as though you’ve been on a journey!
Once we got back to Ratty and deposited the kiddies in it, Alli and I went for another quick mooch around the castle before it got dark.
Farewell my Friends!
P.S – If you fancy doing following in our footsteps, get yourself a copy of this book – it’s walk number 3.
