Friday 15th November. The new parts of Ashby
14 Intrepid walkers met at 16 Winchester Way despite the forecast. We set off up Clifton Drive and along Oakham Grove and took the footpath towards the new estate. The stile was broken but the path was good and we entered the new estate and walked to the cntre(?) of phase 2 where we found a attractive open area. Here we found a footpathe with a fance across it see the photograph. We wndered back to the edge of phase 1 and looked at the display board. It now stared to rain so we hurried to the Olive Branch for cofee and cake. As it rain had stopped we did a short walk around the council estate and back down Marlborough Way. Total distance 2 miles.
