Catholic History Walk near Aberford.

Now that we are coming out of Lock-down we can look to take up where we left off in February. This next walk is at the end of the month, Saturday 29th August - unless it is pouring rain.
I'm calling this walk, "Remains of Parlington", the old estate of the Gasgoigne family close by Aberford. We can take in also the old, now disused, Catholic chapel at Aberford, the ancient earth works at Aberford and, depending on how we plan lunch, we could take in a visit to the old church in Barwick, where the medieval Gasgoignes are buried. And we could also drive over to see the now disused Catholic chapel at Lotherton Hall.
The walk will be no more than 4 miles in all, over more or less flat land. Wear outdoor shoes. Lunch could be packed, or in a pub. The plan is to meet at Aberford at 10am. Park on the main road near the Almshouses, which is at the south end of Aberford.
We are leaving the parish at 9.30am and would expect to be back at the parish by 2pm, at the latest.
