Langar Hall The Vale of Belvoir 28/09/2014

From Langar Hall, recent winner of the Best Rural Hotel, climbing to 4000 Ft we can see Peterborough on the horizon. Rutland Water, Leicester, Loughborough, Melton Mowbray and Belvoir Castle.  The runway at East Midlands Airport, Nottingham and the National Watersports Centre, with the Derbyshire Dales in the distance. Following the trent to Newark with Lincoln on the escarpement. Then down the A1 to Long Bennington and Grantham. Absolutely faboulous visibility! We fly over Barnstone, Moore Dyke by Whatton Manor Race Horse Stud and on to Elton Crossroads and  Orston home to Orston Gun Club. Keeping high to avoid upsetting the many horses and their owners at Orston, we clear the river Devon and land at Staunton in the Vale.
