Thursday 10th December, Toddington, led by Cathy and Kate, 7 miles, 6 ramblers
Starting from the village hall car park, we set off down Conger Lane and headed past the new tree plantations to Charlton Manor then continued South past where the solar farm is proposed.

This brought us past Grove Farm and, excitingly, on to a footbridge over the new A5 M1 Junction 11A link road. We then crossed a field to "death roundabout" at the bottom of Lords Hill. This area has had the footpaths revised, extended and joined up to make a very walkable route. A stop for coffee followed, and the Christmas spirit was entered into with a distribution of mince pies, chocolate Smartie buttons and chocolate bars.

We then turned West and re-crossed the A5 through Wingfield, then Tebworth before reaching the village via The Glebe. This was a lovely walk, visiting some new terrain and surprisingly mud free considering recent weather and the time of year.
