From Whittlesey to March
Off we trotted, having seen the boats through the immediate lock, for what turned out to be an 11.6 mile walk. F & F sat patiently whilst Lesley tried to decide which way up she should point the map (she does try hard bless her).
So we walked and we walked and we walked and we saw nothing until, lo and behold, these popped up...
... I'll tell you, anything that sticks out of the ground by more than 4" around here is real excitement!!!!!!!!
(OK, so the wind farm is just the other side of March, but god this landscape is desperately dull).
The colour in the embankment is lovely though - I love these purple poppies.
Finally we hit the outskirts of March where the footpath takes you between the cottages on your left and their gardens and moorings on your right.
