Back to the MacMillan Way Tongue End to Stamford

A nail biting taxi ride took us from Stamford back to Tongue End. Boy that guy was in a hurry.
The steep banked footpath along the river Glen was designated as a nature reserve. The cattle that maintained the landscape thankfully stepped aside as we ventured past.

The river bank began to reduce in height and we started to leave the fenland landscape behind.
After Sunday lunch at the Hare and Hounds in Greatford we walked on through Shillingthorpe Park where the house was once used as a lunatic asylum. As we emerged from woodland into the dappled sunlight we encountered the magical sight of a herd of roe deer crossing our path. They were almost too far away by the time we had our cameras ready.

Our tired feet found a busier Stamford as it was the weekend of the Burghley Horse Trials.
