Tring to Berkhamsted

On Sunday Maija Roberts led eight Hampstead members on a 10 mile walk from Tring to Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.

The weather was showery to start with but improved gradually through the day.

Wood Anemone was in bloom.

The walk covered some hilly terrain...

We stopped for a quick cuppa by the canal at the strangely named Cow Roast.

Apparently the area was originally called Cow Rest, and was in fact a staging post for the cattle drovers coming down from the Midlands to the London markets.

Cattle were not the only animals around- we passed a llama farm en route...

The high point (literally) was at the Bridgewater Monument just above Aldbury...

We all made it to the station a couple of minutes before the train. Many thanks to Maija for an enjoyable walk in some varied terrain.
