|Weather:||Fair with the odd glimpse of sun and no rain|
|Comments:||29 walkers set out for this mostly flat walk. An interesting 'first half' along the coastal path to Cockersands Abbey and then back via a minor road and fields to the canal. Then back to the pub where we were joined by 4 walkers who had 'done their own thing'.|
