|St Michael and All Angels Church, Fringford|
We were last in the area back in January 2009 to do the Larkrise to Candleford Green series so it was nice to be back walking in such lovely countryside.
A bit of a rainy start but the forecast was good so we were hopeful it would brighten up. Some of the walk takes you through the impressive Shelswell Park Estate.
|We love mud!|
An enjoyable walk that is completely dog friendly, very muddy in places, mainly along the field edges and through a ploughed field but it's what is to be expected this time of year. Completed the walk in 3 hours 45 minutes in glorious sunshine. It really was like a spring afternoon, very uplifting to be walking in the sunshine after all the dark days, snow and rain.
|Beautiful sunny afternoon|
Before leaving Fringford we stopped off for a short walk behind the church to find Deep in the Wood. The previous log was a DNF but we thought we have a look anyway, also other finders had reported it as being a tricky to find cache. After about 10 mins of searching I said 'that's it I give up' and went to head back to the car, Mark said 'OK I'll join you but shall I just sign the log book first' LOL! I will have to try that method in future but sooner next time!
Stopped off in Hethe to do a couple of the Lark Rise to Candleford caches that have appeared since we did the series back in Jan 2009.

|Gated Lane Nr Stoke Lyne|
A 1.5 mile walk to the to of the lane and back.
Time to head home and on the way picked up a few more of the Just Northamptonshire caches, we've found 4 previously and #21, #20 and #28..... 7 down, 109 to go!
