 Marston Moretaine walk 5th September 6 miles

led by Sheila & Mike Briggs.

In lovely sunny weather we started from Marston Morteyne following the Jubilee Trail through old and new woodland to Marston Thrift. Unlike Ampthill Park, the blackberries here looked beautiful and ready to pick so Sheila managed to get a nice box full. There were lots of spectacular views in all directions. It  was a very enjoyable walk ending by the Manor House where the Club had Christmas Lunch . We also saw the Vicarage where Sir Captain Tom walked 100 miles for the NHS and the unusual Church with a separate  tower. Finally there were lots of beautifully carved wooden benches to admire.
