Walk: Osbaldeston Hall, riverbank and jungle
Start Point: Tiggi's (A59) Grid Reference: SD 662 330
Distance: 5.57 miles Ascent: 500 feet
Time: 3 hours
Weather: Warm and mostly dry
Comments: Garden shears were needed to get through thankfully short sections of very overgrown Japaneses Knottweed and bramble bushes after the riverbank section of this walk but many people said Tiggis made it all worthwhile.
