Summary of the walk by Steve Lawrence:

“From The windmill Inn of Badby village we started our walk south to follow the Knightley Way signpost though the edge of Badby Wood down and en route to the historic Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa which was a seventh century royal manor.

After 7 miles long walked to Farthingstone village, via the golf course, we entered the local pub with the pink painted seats placed in front of building and rested there for lunchtime in the back garden, with variety of ornamental objects including glass bottles that embodies with living colourful plants intricately everywhere in the garden, that looks like a fairytale place where elves occupy there.  Fantastically! 

As we strolled continually along for another 5 miles though the deciduous woodland between Farthingstone and Everdon including Everdon Stubbs Park, and on top of Everdon hill we swayed through the cultivated crop with lovely distinctive red poppies mixed as these reminding us the memorial war battlefields of Remembrance. Viewed with some great scenery views over classic Northamptonshire countryside, rolling hills, fields, farmhouses and farm tracks. 

We returned to the Windmill Inn in Badby for some lovely drinks to quench our thirsty. We enjoyed the circular walk which is a little less exciting, but overall this is a really enjoyable walk.”

Circular Hill Walking from Hexton, including Lilley Hoo, 12.5 miles, 5 hours overall.
Quote from Steve Lawrence:
“As we proceeded our walk from the Raven Pub in the village of Hexton to the place of Barton-le-Clay including the few survived thatched-roof cottages and by the church, we then ascended to top of Barton Hills to allow us to overlook the Barton-le-clay below. Continued few miles up to the next Warden Hill where the place of Luton town can be seen below and beyond and then walked down to reach the old fashioned Lilley Arms pub at Lilley Hoo, but less cosy feeling, for a break to re-energised us. We resumed to walk along the way across the chalked farmland throughout. Suddenly there was the hailstones rained down upon us, only for briefly time. Till we reached the triangular pillar and summit of Deacon Hills, via Telegraph Hill and Pegsdon hills. We viewed over the fantastic beautiful Bedfordshire plains and into Hertfordshire countrysides so stunningly. We began to descent the hill as the last of the hills visited. Suddenly we ran down fast cautiously all the way to the bottom of hill hilariously, which reminds us in our childhood.
No doubt it was one of the best place of North Chilterns countryside to seen on the walk that we had experienced with enjoyment indeed. Came off the hill we arrived Hexton and entered the cosy Lavender Tea room of Hexton hall to comfort us!“
