7th March walk at Sandridge led by Peter Shilladay 7 miles with 11 walkers

This walk started at the Heartwood Forest car park. We then walked through Sandridge village and turned right down House Lane.We passed several farms and a sand conveyor which was not working and covered up. Several of the tracks were lined with daffodils which made a pleasant sight.

Geoff,  Sandra,  Sue , Joan,  Ann,  Linda,  Peter,  Beryl , Ruth,  Tony P  & Tony R  by the daffodils.

We then crossed Coopers Green Lane and continued past some disused greenhouse shells to a garden centre where we stopped for a picnic stop.
 We then walked up Oaklands Lane before turning off and walking through Oaklands College.

The latter part of this was a building site behind yellow boarding. But then we came to a lane which led out from the site to a main road which we crossed. This led into Marshallswick housing estate which we navigated our way through by means of many short footpaths. After crossing another field we  returned to Sandridge and found our way back to the Heartwood Forest car park. A big than you to Peter for a walk that was new to most of us.
