On a grey January day, there was six for this walk including the “Spooky Sisters” Claire and Yvette .
On arriving at the start of the walk which was at the Queen's Head car park, we sent Claire in to chat up the knife–wielding chef called Carl, to see if it would be OK to park there. She came back safely with a positive answer, so we set off.
The walk was mainly across fields, some of which weren't muddy. There were some pretty villages on route and interesting buildings. We also came across a confused gate which swung both ways.
As we left Peatling Magna towards Peatling Parva, Luca explained that, in Latin, magna means big and parva means small.
Other events were Luca nearly electrocuting himself on an electric fence (don't they have electric fences in Italy?) and Alexandra going off at lunch time to buy a dozen eggs from a nearby farm, which she then had to carefully carry for the rest of the walk.
At the end of our walk, we relaxed in front of a roaring open fire in the Queen's Head, and it was getting dark by the time we set off for home.

It was a grey day.
Magna and Parva.
Hey Claire, it can't have been that funny!
We end up in a cosy pub.
It took me a while to realise why Alexandra had sent me a picture of her dinner; of course its her egg omelette.

Who lives in a house like this?
Someone with plenty of money, it would seem.
