Nutfield Circular via Outwood

Yesterday saw 9 ramblers joining Michael and Olga Way for an 8 1/2 mile walk in wonderful Surrey countryside.

[Michael is above, second left].

Although the day was somewhat overcast at first, the weather cleared and the rain held off.

[Surrey countryside at its best...]

We walked through a fine mixture of farmland and woodland. It was a day for tradition. We passed sheep dog trials...

And there was a cricket game taking place on the pitch at Outwood...

The focus of the walk was the windmill at Outwood, the oldest working post mill in the country. You can find out more by going to the link here

[Olga is pictured centre, in the pink top.]

The lunch stop included a quick drink in the 17th century Bell Inn, where the group were treated to a sighting of theatrical royalty in the form of Dame Judi Dench, a local resident.

There were plenty of wild flowers to be seen...

This is Lesser Stitchwort.

Even the local animals were friendly...
