On a dry, frosty morning eleven of us set off from Bucknell, taking the footpath following near the railway line towards Coxall farm. Passing the farm we crossed the lane leading to Adleymoor and continued on footpath across the fields and round the top of the heronry. Saw some old nests but no herons today. Where the path emerged on to the lane to Buckton Park we sent Mike into the puddle first to test the depth,
It's not that deep
and then picked a way skirting the deepest muddy water. At Buckton Park we admired the beautiful barn and continued along n the Herefordshire Trail into Leintwardine.

Coffee stop was by the river which was flowing fast. Repair work is being carried out on the lovely bridge there. After a walk up Watling Street and down the main road we left Leintwardine via Mill Lane and followed the Rive Clun towards Jay and then across the fields to Adleymoor Common. We stopped for lunch at Clare and Mark's house on Adleymoor, eating our sandwiches in the new kitchen extension.

A tour of their field and then back on to the lane towards Coxall Farm and returning to Bucknell, crossing the railway.
