Swinstead, Creeton, Edenham and Grimsthorpe, 25th March 2018

What a difference a week makes!  Glorious sunshine this Sunday, excellent, dry tracks and a first-rate walk leader (Steve told me to say that).  Nineteen on the walk with two visitors from the Worksop Group.

The walk started outside St Mary's Church, Swinstead ...
Steve addresses the troops.  Due to Ramblers' new directive, Guidance for the General Data Protection Regulation, we are not allowed to show his face without his written consent (until next week)
 ... and went south along The Drift close to the East Coast mainline to Creeton for coffee, then on to Edenham for lunch, returning via Grimsthorpe Park.
