A full calendar year on the Heart of England Way and I arrive at Fillongley.
Nope, never heard of it either.
As usual, the walk starts where refreshment can be found. I am going to hold the Manor House to its advertising claims.

Plotting this leg on the HOEW, showed featureless terrain and a distinct lack of Geocaches to break the apparent monotony. There are three multis in the village and I complete the first one, using the digits of the telephone box to bag "a nice pair".
Onto the walk, which can only be described as fields and lanes. And that's it.

2 hrs 30 minutes and I am back taking photos of Fillongley's lovely church.
First, I enquire about Lunch. There is none. The lady says that the Cottage Inn up the road does food but it still leaves me with a dilemma. Do I forsake my favourite beer for a meal?
I risk it to be rewarded with a choice of four ales - surprisingly including the rarely spotted (in these parts) TT Boltmaker.
But a certain red triangle caught my eye and should go fine with a Ploughman's.
