Today's walk took me to Warmsworth and then right to the southern tip of Balby, returning home via Edlington, Sprotbrough, and Newton. I walked to Hexthorpe and then along the riverside footpath and the short path across the fields to Warmsworth cemetery, and then the old part of the village beyond.
I continued down a track to the road that enters the south of Balby, turned right and after only a few yards turned right again along the course of a disused railway line which took me to Lord's Head Lane and the approach to Edlington. I continued heading north until I arrived at the traffic lights, crossed the busy trunk road and went along Mill Lane to Sprotbrough. I spent a few minutes in Warmsworth Park, which is located inside an old quarry.
The refreshments van isn't down by the river on a Monday and so I had to settle for a sit down and a few sips of my orange squash. I set off on my journey home, walking along the TransPennine Trail until I climbed up the steps onto the cycleway that uses the old railway line and stuck with this for a few minutes until I reached the path that goes over to Newton. From there I just took the shortest, and quickest, route back to the town centre.
I don't know why this footbridge over the railway has to be so high.
