We began the stage from Healing on overcast but dry weather. Our route took us out of Healing via the sports field followning the railway line. Crossing the access road to the A180 we dropped down onto a field path I had offten looked down on but never walked. We followed this into Great Coates and made our way to the Freshney Parkway which we followed nearly to Laceby Springs with views of the the area's only remaing elm tree. We then climbed up to the A47 where we made our way back to the cars in the gathering dusk and fast approaching rain. We made it just in time! After shuttling cars around we drove to The Swallow for an excellent early evening meal and some rehydration.
