Seven of us set off on what looks like being the H-C’s biennial Lingen Loop walk. With some concern I was reminded that we lead this walk in 2008, 2011, 2013 and now 2015! Shows lack of originality on our part, or, more accurately, the only walk I can remember easily when doing a recce for new walks proves difficult.
However every time you do a walk it is a bit different and that proved to be the case this time. We were very lucky with the weather. Raining in Bucknell when we assembled at the lych-gate, sunshine at Lingen when we set off at 9.25am. And it stayed that way. We stopped, as usual, to talk to the pigs, tossed them a few windfalls from the tree by their enclosure and admired the two rings that the boar has in his nose – very trendy.
