Harcamlow Way 11 - Manuden to Arkesden 11/10/16

From  Manuden we headed east to Bollington Hall and then north to Rickling Hall where we passed an alpaca farm (or were they llamas?). We then took a big loop to the east to reach All Saints Church at Rickling before heading north east towards Newport. Just before passing under the M11 we came across St Helens Chapel which dates from the 11th and is one of the oldest buildings in eastern England. Having passed under the M11 we continued to the south of Newport to come within about 100 yds of the eastern part of the Harcamlow Way between Saffron Wadlden and Thaxted which we had walked earlier in the year. We now turned through 360 degrees and headed west passing the northern edges of Newport and under the M11 once again. It was now open countryside until we reached our destination of Arkesden
