Culford & Flempton Circular Run

In Culford, Flempton, Hengrave on August 8, 2005 at 8:01 pm



6pm 5 miles in 38.45 mins.
Year to date mileage 722 Month to date 42 miles
Average miles per week this year 23.0
Average per month 100.

Weather: Warm and sunny.

Course: Go past Culford Church, Culford Hall, the Cricket pitch and a narrow lake. You emerge on a minor road outside of the Culford school grounds turn left and follow the road where you eventually emerge at Flempton.Follow the road back through Hengrave and into Culford. This was a repeat of last Mondays run.

Between the villages of Flempton and Hengrave there is a memorial stone to those who died in the 1st world war. Set back from the road about half a mile outside of both villages the memorial stone is obviously still well tended. I have yet to find any history as to why the stone has been placed outside of the villages and not within the grounds of one of the churches such as St Catherines above.

My averages are steadily increasing each week as my training has gone well over the last 6 weeks.
