Denton and the Grantham Canal, 4th March 2018

The walk from Empingham was cancelled today due to the adverse weather conditions (snowdrifts in Rutland) so, instead, ten of us walked from Denton to the reservoir, across fields to Harlaxton Bridge, along the canal to Bridle Bridge, returning along the disused ironstone railway.
