Nene Way/Barnwell - Thurs 12 Jan 2017

Nene Way to Barnwell and a Sandwich Hunt

Leader: Geoff Curnock

10 intrepid walkers - tho' the weather was not as bad as forecast - no snow!

A very enjoyable day - the sun came out briefly at Wadenhoe for our mid-morning break and there was a  bit of drizzle in the afternoon, but nothing worse when we were walking.

Thrapston - the Nene Way to Barnwell  via Aldwincle, Wadenhoe, Achurch. Back to Thrapston via Titchmarsh. 

Our “sandwich hunt” brought us to Barnwell, home of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, the inventor of the sandwich.

Lots of lovely Northants stone villages, stunning houses and churches.
