Wonderful Wadenhoe

After living for 25 years just a few miles down the road I have very recently discovered Wadenhoe, a wonderful place on the banks of the River Nene.

This short walk around the ancient monument at Wadenhoe, a medieval mound and earthworks overlooking the surrounding countryside topped by a 13th Century church has plenty to explore on a bright November day.

This is a favoured spot for walkers and swimmers as well as canoeists.

This limestone mound area has been steepened and developed in medieval times and had buildings on it. I am looking forward to coming in the spring and summer to look at the flowers and the insects.

The lichens and berries on the trees and the split willows were very attractive in the unseasonably warm November sun.

The Lichens continued to impress in the churchyard and the walls. The views from the church across the landscape are really super and a walk from here to Lyveden New Bield is signposted and is a definite must do.

The river here is sweeping and flowing through the countryside . Kingfishers are seen here often and I’m looking forward to exploring more here in the new year.

Good news there is also a tea room , can’t be bad !
