Course: Set of towards Horringer over fields towards Lord Hervey’s wood and Great Horringer Hall. Along Westley Lane and into Horringer Village. At the Church turn right into Ickworth Park, down to Ickworth House and then do a circuit of Albana Wood before returning on the same route.

Very warm and although I ran early it was still warm. The ground is so dry that at times along the field edges I was running to avoid the cracks in the ground!

In the village of Horringer they are making really good progress on building new houses where there used to a large garage selling cars.

I always enjoy visiting Ixworth Park. You usually see a few cars in the National Trust car park with visitors to the home and gardens. Sometimes they have a kiosk which is staffed by a national trust member collecting the fees for visiting. If I see him the guy always looks as if he would like me to pay but as he can see I am hardly likely to be carrying any money.

The highlight of this run is going around the Albana Walk where you are always likely to see deer both in an enclosure and in the woods. Being early morning some of the hedges were covered in spider webs.
