Undeterred by the downpour at 9am, the road closure at Sharpenhoe, Corona Virus and the change of date, about 16 ramblers arrived in good time at the Raven Arms ready to walk the 6 miles. It was a lovely walk - sun and fluffy white clouds; a sheltered start up a valley to the Icknield way; a lovely coffee stop at the base of Telegraph Hill with logs to sit on and then a brisk stroll up to Deacon Hill - where we really had to struggle to stay on our feet for the photograph!
The wind then propelled us down the East side until we reached the shelter of the hill.
Sun and white clouds continued as we passed lambs and sheep, but we could see the grey sky over to the West - it amounted only to a few minutes of drizzle and we ended the walk warm and dry back at the Raven Arms.
