2021_06_16 Barton and Newton Morrell

Leader :  Marg          Distance  5.7 miles

Change of walk today. As everywhere around Bolam was so overgrown I decided to start from Barton.

8 of us set off along a minor road and crossed over the motorway. Shortly after we took the path towards Brettanby Manor and farm first crossing over Clow Beck where we had a quick coffee on the bridge.

From the farm we walked over the fields towards Grunton. Gillian had been thinking about a cut off but then found some wheels thinking this is a much better way of continuing especially as the farm twins had left the keys in!

We continued on minus the wheels which was just as well as very soon after we bumped into the twins and all had a good laugh.

Just after passing through New Wood we found a nice little spot for lunch.

After lunch we took the path towards Newton Morrell passing back over the motorway and once again crossing Clow Beck over a little bridge. Once at Newton Morrell it was along the road and back into Barton in glorious sunshine
