This grand house is part of the Firby Estate which we needed to cross. many public footpaths cross private land and owners are obliged to provide access.
This is the driveway to the house.
A chaffinch sang to us as we walked past.
This garden had its own miniature railway including a Great Western Railway bench
Thanks for pointing that out Paul. I feel a lot better now about crossing the field.
No time for chatting. We were all ready for lunch but needed to cover at least 3 more miles before we stopped. We always tried to cover more than half our daily mileage before stopping. It seemed to give us a psychological boost for the afternoon's walk.
Another railway line to cross but I don't think this is still in operation looking at the vegetation growing up around the rails.
George VI post box by the side of the road. There are many with GR on them but not VI as well.
George V was King for 26 years whereas his son George VI was King for only 16 years.
Not much passing space.
We had a very warm welcome in the pub with very comfortable rooms and excellent food.
