Saturday August 8th Hockliffe, 8.5 miles, three ramblers led by Ruth
There were origianlly six booked on this ramle but visitors and a hot forecast resulted in three cancelleations, giving the three remaining ramblers a chance to agree to set off early at 9am to avoid the worst of the heat. It was lovely and cool with good views across the field with Leighton Buzzard church steeple in view. Later there was a glad of trees to and from the light railway line on Mile End Road.
On the way to Battlesden we had a break under a welcome solitary oak tree then caught a welcome breeze as we walked across fields to and from Tebworth. No-one elected for the shortcut, all glad of a longer walk to increase our fitness.
