Snowy Sarratt

Below freezing temperatures ensured that the few hardy souls who got to Chorleywood this Saturday had a snowy welcome.

If you go through Chorleywood, make sure you have enough time to pause and enjoy the free art-gallery - they have a splendid collection of London Transport posters and cards in the underpasses...

Mind you, the fares have gone up a little....

There was no shortage of footpaths in this part of the Chilterns

Jane, Hampstead's Walks Organiser, took the next couple of images;

There was a Christmassy feel to the woods.

This weathervane atop the Pavilion at Chorleywood Cricket Club prophesied England's fate in the West Indies later in the day...

This was a moderately paced walk. A lunch stop at the Boot Public House in Sarratt provided a welcoming open fire, and Cheesey Chips for added energy.

This group photo by Jane gives an idea of the territory we covered in our eight mile walk through the Chess valley.

"Undulating Terrain" is how we describe it in our walk guide.
