May Day saw us making a large circle of Byways and lanes around the Thrapston area. It was a wonderful sunny day and the first day many of the Byways are open. The local councils close them from October to April. We were suprised how muddy some of them were as it has been quite dry lately. We passed woods filled with Primroses and lots of Cowslips..
