Marston Trussell > Sibbertoft > Marston Trussell
Map and Elevation:
Norman will be leading this week’s walk from Marston Trussell, Northamptonshire.
Head north-east out of the village and take the footpath to the right that goes through the churchyard of St. Nicholas Church. The latin inscription, Pereunt Et Imputantur, just below the clock face is translated as “They perish and are reckoned,” meaning that the hours and days perish and are reckoned to our accounts.
The footpath leads diagonally to Farndon Road but it may be better to go around the (muddy) field to the footbridge in the far corner. Cross Farndon Road and continue south along the not too muddy path to Dicks Hill. Crossing this road, join the Jurassic Way and follow it for a smidgen over a mile. The path climbs steadily but eventually it levels out until Sibbertoft and The Red Lion pub is reached.
Suitably refreshed, head north out of Sibbertoft, past the sewage works (hidden behind a row of trees), and gradually downwards through Hothorpe Hills and on to Hothorpe Road. Turn right off Hothorpe Road onto Theddingworth Road and thence back to Marston Trussell.
