Local Walks

I've just added the first of (what will become) a collection of walks in the local area - mostly rural but including at least one town walk.

The first walk I've added is lovely in dry weather, but if it has been raining heavily for a few days beforehand, then it can get extremely muddy (ankle deep in mud) so I have stressed the possibility of mud within the text.  However, it is a lovely walk, taking a couple of hours, with a mixture of lanes and public footpaths, with open countryside, woodland and walking through a little bit of Box, which is a very pretty village.

The walk also goes through Longford's Mill, which is very attractive and although most of the mill buildings have been converted into houses and apartments, it has been done very sympathetically, and the remaining mill building might be used as some sort of heritage centre, which would add further interest to the walk.
