On a warm and humid 15th August, our intrepid group set off from Zouch for a very pleasant walk alongside the River Soar. This is not the Ashby-de-la-Zouch that most of us will probably know of, but in fact quite near Kegworth, an area that we have not often visited for our monthly walks.
This walk was postponed from last month, because of the extreme heat. As we walked, it did look as though we might actually get wet, but in the event we stayed dry! There were quite a few narrow boats out and about on the river. Going northwards, the Soar joins the River Trent at Trent lock, and we left the riverbank near Kegworth to return via very dry fields and finally Sutton Bonnington village.
A pleasant and interesting walk, with thanks to Steve and Ann Lawrence for organizing this walk.
Our next walk will be on Monday, 19th September, 2022.
