A Wimpole Walk
We did a nice little walk on land around Wimpole Hall today, starting at the hall, walking to Kingston and then back via Eversden Wood and the folly. 9.3 miles according to Google and we did it at moving average of 2.7mph according to my trusty GPS.
It was surprisingly hard work, certainly harder than our last walk which was a little longer, probably because a lot of it was on rough or muddy paths so hard on leg muscles. Although it was dry and mild is was overcast and quite windy.

Although she's been to Wimpole Hall before Beth hadn't seen the folly so I was looking forward to showing it to her. We were disappointed though: the gate was firmly locked.
Judging by the sign it seems that the folly, which was built like this so it looked like a crumbling ruin, is now actually crumbling. Very sad. I hope they find the money to stop it getting any worse.

Anyway we had a cup of tea, a sausage roll and a slice of bread pudding at the café before heading for home, and I bought a book too at their second hand book shop.
