This pleasant walk, away from all main roads, begins in the largest of the three villages with an old stone church, a small stream, the only pub in the area and easy parking by the village green opposite the church.

Going north to Thornton, the trail climbs steadily then goes down a little to Thornton. Walking eastwards to Nash there is a little ascent, then the ground is relatively high with good views. Returning eastwards back to Thornborough the trail follows a stream along a shallow valley.

There is a fine building in Thornton which is now a college run by Roman Catholic nuns, mainly for girls aged between two and 16, although boys can attend until four. The historic parish church has been restored and can be seen in the college grounds.

The walk to Nash across fields and past two woods has the best views of the surrounding countryside. Nash is a pretty village with some charming old cottages and some much newer buildings. There is a church, but no pub or restaurant.

The walk back to Thornborough follows a small stream but on approaching the village one meets an array of ornamental iron gates, many of them yellow, each with an individual design, so there is plenty of interest, making it a fascinating walk.

A common problem at this time of year due to farmers ploughing their fields. If the footpath is not reinstated within a couple of weeks please let us know where the problem is and we'll make a report to the local footpaths officer.

This was not a pleasant walk. The fields had been ploughed to the very edge. There was no path available and it made crossing them very difficlut. Sunday 09/09/07
