It was supposed to rain only in the afternoon, but it rained all day. It was however not as muddy as it could have been, compared with other recent walks. The pub was nice, and the scenery was very pleasant for a walk so close to London. On the way back through Bulstrode Park, we were greeted by a large herd of horses.
Well done you brave souls. Thanks to Gillian for the photos.
Twenty one walkers were enticed with the promise of early spring sunshine to Tring, to experience a walk of nine miles with much variety, featuring canals, reservoirs, farms and parkland. We also had time to visit the Tring Natural History Museum, filled with stuffed animals, and this was followed by a really attractive section of the Ridgeway back to Tring station.
Many thanks to the kind and efficient staff at the Anglers’ Retreat at Marsworth, who looked after us so well. Mike C
