When the outskirts Pub walks along the Midshires Way book the town is reached the track curves to the right and then the left to become a road; continue on down this road as it heads towards the centre of the town. The map showed the trail heading off through the woodland away from the main track; I found the right footpath, but it was covered in branches that had been deliberately laid across it, and I soon came to a wire fence guarding a cleared area. Please let me have comments on what you think of this new format. Continue following the wall on the left as the path becomes a rough track; go through a pedestrian gate beside a field gate to enter the grounds of Upton Hall Farm, and then turn half-right away from the track to follow a fence on the right.

Continue along this broad and easy to follow track as it heads northwards, slowly curving to the left to a more northwesterly course.

I was now back on the Nene Way, walking a part of the trail I first did back in March. Countryside news and campaigns 6. After about fifty metres, turn right to join a footpath that runs between fences and then hedges. This was not too much of a problem as there was a pavement, and I used this to get me to a road junction beside a pub.

Take the next exit, the A St Peter's Way, and follow it as it curves to the right. Initially a road headed uphill, but as I wanted to reduce the mount of road walking that I would have to do, I soon joined a footpath that promised to cut off a large stretch of road.

A good track angles slightly left immediately on entering the woodland; follow this for a little over metres, and then take a less distinct track that angles off to the right through the trees.

Cross the dual carriageway using the pedestrian crossing, and on the other side turn left for a few metres to reach a large roundabout. By this time my feet were a little warm, and I stopped on a bench on the village green, took off my boots and spent ten minutes getting loose pieces of straw and grass off my socks!

Go past double field gates and cut across the end of Moorcut Drive, and head along a paved path that runs immediately in front of houses.

As the pavement was on the other, northern, side of the bridge I had to cross the road, and as it was busy I had to wait for a few minutes for a suitable gap in the traffic to occur. Follow a wall on the left towards another band of trees on the right.
