Mad rush on from Keythorpe Farm by a fleet of mighty tractors each with with a gaint trailer to fill to get the cut grass in before the morning drizzle wet it through.I stood aside as each rumbled at speed up the track - each driver kindly giving me a cheery wave - although given a choice I would have been even happier for them to keep both hands on the wheel! Clearly the whole family had been pressed into service - I marvelled at one sallow youth looking hardly 16 yrs old nonchantly controlling one monster tractor, then behind him roared past his petite younger sister driving a similar machine with the same relaxed ease! Luckliy they all headed down into the easten fields and peace resumed.Chris Pearson20/05/2022

We exited via thinnest point between field and enclosed woodland and a footbridge Took us to The outskirts of The field. We Headed sw to take us onto The public fp towards The Pine tree stud and then onto The minor road leading towards Glooston. PS.
