Bluebells in the Chilterns

Jane Rosoux reports on last Friday's circular walk in the Chilterns....

"A party of 11 of us set out from Wendover Station on another lovely day and although the bluebells had come out early this year and many were past their best Joe Garver led us through a succession of woods where the bluebells were still putting on a good display....

"And at the lunch stop at 'The White Lion', Buckland Common the picnickers enjoyed an impressive display of buttercups....

More Sawbridgeworth Photos

Hampstead Rambler Heidi Whurr has sent us photographs previously. She sent me a selection just recently, and I have great pleasure in posting her images of the Joint Hampstead and Northwest London walk reported on below.

Sawbridgeworth Circular

Jane Rosoux reports on the May day 15 mile circular walk from Sawbridgeworth led by Stephen Bird....

"The weather was excellent and the ground was very dry. There were 11 of us in the party and we enjoyed an interesting walk led at a brisk pace with varied scenery. Our lunch stop was at the ancient village of Hatfield Broad Oak at 'The Cock Inn', which is very near the early medieval church. A highlight of the afternoon was the walk through Hatfield Forest."
