Moreton Hall Circular Run Suffolk

In barnack stone, Moreton Hall, Peterborough, River Lark, suffolk on September 30, 2005 at 7:27 pm

5.30pm 7.6 miles in 1hr 2 mins.

Year to date mileage 950

Month to date 141 miles

Average miles per month 106

Average weekly rate 24.4

Weather: Heavy rain showers

Course: Set of through the Town Centre along Cullum Rd and the Water Meadows. Along by the River Lark and No Mans Meadow then over the A14 bridge. I did a circuit around Moreton Hall before returning home via the Town Centre.

When looking at the low level of the River Lark in Bury St Edmunds you would hardly believe it was once navigable, however the barnack stone used to build the Abbey was transported up this river. The Barnack Hills are near Peterborough and the original medieval quarry is now a nature reserve.

September has been my second most successful month of the year for mileage
