The wife & I ventured out today despite the stormy looking clouds. For a change we decided to go south of the Trent from Newark, rather than our usual Thurgaton-Bleasby route, thus turning our normal linear ride into something more circular. The new route allowed us to take in Hawton, which promised a chance of seeing the new Solar farm that has just opened. From Newark we headed toward Hawton then diverted to pay a visit to Farndon after which we followed the small roads skirting the south of the river up to Gunthorpe bridge.
From Gunthorpe we went along the bridal/footpath on the north bank of the river until we reached Burton Joyce where we rejoined the main road back through Carlton and home.
