Packington / Normanton

  • Walked: 23 April 2010
  • Distance: 5.5m
  • Terrain: flattish
  • Summary: Park in packington, cross fields to Sprng Lane and continue straight along track. Take the muddy bridleway to Normanton le Heath, and take paths which run parallel to the road back to Packington.
  • Time: 2 hrs

The weather's been so nice recently, so the muddy bridleway wasn't. A beautiful afternoon, with lots of signs of spring around; various shades of green in the trees and hedges, blackthorn flowers, dandelions in full flower, elder starting to come into leaf, lambs in the fields.

The route above was generated using Meander.

Mmmm … Lambing, blackthorn and dandelion clocks remind me that it is mowing season, darn it.
The front lawn is suddenly a dandelion patch.

I was reminded of a walk that i took a group of friends on recently when i saw your dandelion picture. I really like the idea of your walk maps.
