Macmillan Way from Oakham to Maidwell

We walked fifteen miles on the first May bank holiday Monday, from Oakham to Weston by Welland. We tried to stop for lunch at Hallaton, which has two nice pubs, but they were quite busy.

So cute

We continued our walk two weeks later, another 15 miles to Maidwell in Northamptonshire. We managed a nice meal this time at The Swan at Braybrooke. This walk includes part of the Brampton Valley Way, starting from an old railway tunnel at Great Oxendon. There was a second tunnel at Kelmarsh before the Macmillan Way leaves the old railway line at Maidwell.
