July 4th, Toddington, 6 miles led by Ruth
After crossing the Flit we walked through Chalton Spinney where we had coffee spread around the interpretation hut. Joan and Hilary went inside, Ruth Torunn, Kate and Beryl braved the wind outside. The flowers were abundant: pyramindal and common spotted orchids, Betony, Agrimony, bedstraw and Knapweed. After a short road walk we crossed fields to gaze at the newish M1: A5 link road and the housing estate in progress. We returned to Toddington approaching Crowbush Farm and all ended up at the Community Gardens at the back of the Methodist Church where we picked raspberries. A lovely walk with good company.
