The second in a series of Mindfulness and Wellbeing walks took us to Lyvden New Bield an unfinished Elizabethan summer house in the east of Northamptonshire, England, owned by the National Trust.
Before the walk artist Carole Miles
designed windsocks printed with
figures to represent each participant.
In the garden participants drew or stamped
on their windsock to personalise it.
We walked to the ruin built by Sir Thomas Tresham
There was very little wind.
We had to stop, ten move in order to catch the wind,
We walked up the first spiral landmark
Carolyn led a mindfulness meditation- Stop
We closed our eyes and caught our breath.
Shared a picnic including jam made from
the blackberries we foraged during the
Rushden walk. We made notes
in our walk notebooks
We walked to the second spiral
Hung up our windsocks
We walked to the orchard, admired
the apples and damsons.
Shared quiet conversations.

Walk distance 2 miles.
Many thanks to Sharon Taylor and The National Trust for helping the group to visit and for making our time at the property so special.
