.Year to date mileage 1028

Month to date 78 miles

Average miles per month 109

Average weekly rate 25

Weather: A warm autumn day as the morning mist lifted.

Course: Hawstead Village is about 3 miles south of Bury St Edmunds. I parked in the car park next to the swings. The picture showing the grass field and road on the road is right in the centre of the village. For a Saturday being perhaps the busiest day of the week there was hardly a soul to be seen.

I started running out towards Lawshall but changed my mind as the road was a little too windy and this was a main road. Although there were’nt many cars I didn’t feel comfortable. Si I returned and found another path along Bell Lane.

Bell’s Lane leads up hill towards Gt Whelnetham. At Bell’s Lane farm I managed to find a pathway across fields though the ground was rather sticky and stuck to my Saucony Trigon responsive shoes.

At Gt Whelnethum I took a path which takes you along side the grounds of the Gt Whelnethum Halland up Cocks Green lane to Cocks Green. I returned back to Hawstead.

The picture of the building shows some almshouses erected by a Philip Metcalfe
