Overview

The 10:00am walk heads north west towards Flitteriss Park Farm. We then turn south west towards Preston Lodge. A brief southerly section then turns north east to return to Braunston via South Lodge Farm. There will be a coffee stop during the walk.

This walk is a bit more strenuous than the afternoon walk if you’re thinking of only doing one of the walks
