Ampthill to Maulden and back - 9 miles on 31st October
led by Celia and Bob Wallace
This walk should had 6 walkers however 2 had to cancel so 4 brave souls set out from Ampthill Park at 9.15 am on 31st October. We walked through the park and crossed the mainroad before walking up the track towards Houghton House. We past by Kings Wood before turning right towards Linbersey Lane where we observed a lot of traffic traveling towards Maulden. We concluded that a diversion must be in place somewhere. We left the road via a very muddy footpath and eventually turned left into Maulden Woods. Here the rain really started, after a few light showers that didn't bother us. But this was serious rain and therefore we donned our waterproofs. When we exited the woods we came to a collection of Halloween items, see photo below.
