Kelmarsh & Gt Oxendon Tunnels

Following our theme of finding walks that offer photographic opportunities for Luke and his ever present camera, last Sunday we trundled along to Kelmarsh tunnel in North Northants. I was also conscious of the atrocious weather we’ve had lately, so fancied a walk that would be mostly solid […]

Lyveden New Bield, Northants
