Yes it's true, on 25 July, I found ripe blackberries.
With just a couple of hours to spare, I needed a short walk with a start close to home. This walk starts and finishes at the Beeches pub in Ashby, passes the Tap House (used to be Anwell Inn), crosses the A511, past the Bluebell Arboretum, through Smisby and past the Smisby Arms, takes in some beautiful views just north of Ashby and returning via the Ivanhoe Way.
And yes, they were delicious!
