12.9° C by mid morning, if it wasn’t for bare trees it would be difficult to distinguish from an early summer morning. This walk took me from Foxhall to Nacton, directly past my sons old School Orwell Park and to the river bank shoreline in Nacton, a popular place with walkers, runners and twitchers. Nacton shoreline is the River Orwellian equivalent of Piccadilly Circus on bank holidays, not even the mud was keeping people from enjoying the mild weather.
If you don’t like walking in mud then avoid this walk when wet. Even dry hot sunny days there will be muddy areas around the creeks and streams. Avoid the mud by walking on the high ground. My advice would be if you see the deep holes created by cattle full of water then turn back and use the road for that part of the walk.
Alternatively if you are the kind of person who takes string with you on a walk you will find plenty of old wood to strap to your boots to over the tough parts.
