Sarah’s Great Finborough Walk – Saturday 9th November

Text and map contributed by Sarah, pics by Raj.

Sixteen people set out on the first six miles of this walk from Great Finborough on a crisp but sunny morning. We headed past the church with its magnificent spire, which we could see from several points during the day. After passing through the Golf course, we followed the Rattlesden river before heading towards Onehouse. We had a brief stop in Northfield Wood before heading towards Onehouse Church, with its round tower. After a brief photo stop here, we headed back towards Great Finborough for our lunch and pub stop. In the pub, we meet a large Great Dane called Trigger.

A few people left us during the lunch period, leaving eleven walkers for the afternoon’s four-mile loop. This loop took us south through farm land and fields. We spotted a couple of deer during this part of the walk as well as other wildlife. When we eventually returned to Great Finborough, a few of us retired to the pub for another quick drink before heading home.
