Overview

The route will include riverside walking, the villages of Westborough and Dry Doddington (notable for its church with a tower that leans at a greater angle than the Leaning Tower of Pisa), plus a section of the Viking Way. The walk is mostly fairly flat, but there is one quite steep hill. There will be coffee and picnic lunch stops.
