The reverse of this route:
From Fineshade, down the hill and take the path off to the left across the big field with a dip in the middle. At the far side we take the path down through woodland, and across a grass field and a path between fences to a stile above Fineshade Abbey.
Here we turn left along the field to a gate with way marker which takes us on to a track through Lynn Wood. We meet a bridleway and follow it slightly to our right.
Another field, then through a gap in the hedge and we turn right, following the field edges, with Blatherwycke Lake on our right.
From the bridge we walk on past a junction where a road goes left and on to the next one. Our path goes through a gate, or over a stile for the athletic and heads north through the middle of the field. A few more fields bring us to where the land dips down, almost Derbyshire style, past woodland to a concrete bridge. Here we join the Jurassic Way and follow it uphill to rejoin the path above Fineshade Abbey, retracing our steps to the car park and then the café.
Thanks, Mel for a pleasant walk, in almost dry conditions - just the tiniest drizzle!
