Ascending TheLangton Caudle
26 walkers set out on Tuesday morning from the Langton Arms at Church Langton for one of our favourite walks. The weather forecast meant we all had rain gear but we were blessed again with a rain free day and a lot of sun. We headed out towards Stonton Wyville where we turned sharp right and up the Langton Caudle.
A Golden scene towards Crossburrow Hill
The 360 degree view from the top was just the place for the coffee stop. The descent to Thorpe Langton was dry but the ground was churned up on the lower half as usual and the culprits(bullocks) accompanied us all the way to the ford. The path then took us behind the church and parallel to the road into East Langton. From there into Church Langton we took a recently diverted footpath around a new house? into the Langton Arms. Here we rejoined our 5 happy short walkers.
Thanks to John & Pat T who had booked with the previous tenants ( it happens a lot) and had closely monitored the situation, we were treated to excellent meals at a special price by the new tenant.
