Monday 9th September. Carton to Shackerstone circular, led by Alison

Just 4 hardy souls set off from Main St, Carlton on a slightly wet Monday morning. The route took us across open countryside to Shackerstone Railway Station. Unfortunately, there was no warm welcome to be found at the cafe as it was closed. Oh well, on we continued along the Ashby Canal and sheltered under bridge 51 for our morning refreshment. The canal path took us virtually back to Carlton, we just had to cross the railway line to get back to our cars, by which time the rain had stopped!! 2.5 hours and 5.5 miles completed.
