Macmillan Way…..ish Stamford to Oakham

Stamford
Stamford

We somehow took the wrong route out of Stamford, travelling northwest rather than south west. This meant half of our walk was along roads instead of footpaths. We missed the villages of Easton on the Hill and Ketton and only rejoined the route when we entered Empingham. Rather a walk ruined really, we will be careful to cross reference our MacMillan Way book and ordnance survey phone app next time.

After lunch, sat outside in the sunshine at the White Horse Inn, we crossed the road and followed the footpath to Rutland water. We took the North Shore route and followed it back to Oakham.
