In a cool north easterly wind, the afternoon of Sunday 7th May was spent putting up more way markers on the third section of the route from Bedingham to Hardwick Common.
Thankfully, for the most part, we were sheltered from the wind by high hedges on each side. There were ditches on either side, signifying this as an ancient way. We were delighted to find orchids, as well as cowslips flowering along the path. Having first walked the route four years ago, I had forgotten how delightful a path this was. A straightforward section, we only had to put up markers on four posts. After reaching Barondole Road, the route is via quiet roads for about 1 1/2 miles until turning off the common towards Primrose Farm, Shelton.
