A beautiful day in the Northamptonshire countryside

The weather forecast was for a nice sunny Monday moving into a wet rest of the week, so we thought we would take advantage of the day and set off to travel some of the local Byways.

According to Wikipedia

byway in the United Kingdom is a track, often rural, which is too minor to be called a road. These routes are often unsurfaced, typically having the appearance of 'green lanes'.

Packed lunches at the ready we spent about 6 hours travelling as many Byways as we could. The sun was really hot and the only "air conditioner" the old Land Rover has is to open the flaps at the front or the side windows. Often it is too difficult to have the windows open as the lanes are so narrow the trees and brambles tend to come into the car.
Not that I am complaining one little bit about the lovely sunshine.
