Thank you to Alan Smith who led our walk on Friday 5th.
Starting at The Seaton Inn we walked to Burdon Village with Alan providing snippets of information about the population of the village and the shooting of a resident.
We managed a peek at Burdon Hall (well the chimneys anyway) then onwards to Warden Law where Carol Hindmarch told us about a Jug with unusual decoration that was unearthed at the quarry; a Roman item now in the British Museum. Also, that the monks carrying St. Cuthbert’s body probably passed this way on their journey to find a resting place for it.
We continued down Salter’s Lane passed the Wind Turbines, turning left to head towards the old railway line following this back to Seaton.
A sunny but windy day did not spoil a walk we all enjoyed.
Once again, our thanks to Alan for guiding us.
Bob had a rest so Alan led fifteen of us on the walk this morning, enjoying near perfect weather apart from a rather cool wind blowing down from the North.
We all enjoyed the bracing conditions, with a few gentle inclines to get the heart rate going.
We were spurred on by the thought of coffee or lunch at the Seaton Lane Inn, a perfect end to the walk.
Seaton Lane Inn is good spot for coffee or lunch, the staff are friendly and helpful.
Many thanks Alan
