Thursday 5th August - Woburn Sands Walk - 7.5 miles - 9 walkers

This walk, which was led by Brenda and Beryl  started from the Shoppers' car park in Woburn Sands.

Brenda and I selected the route from the OS Explorer Map 192. Unfortunately, before we did the recci we were told that the footpath behind HULA Animal Rescue was closed. We were also worried about the path across the old Wavendon Golf Course which is now earmarked for housing. However, these fears were unfounded because both paths were open when we did the recci.

We did, however, come across other hazards – very long grass and tall stinging nettles – but on the actual day of the walk the grass and nettles had been mown down. This only left us the stiles to worry about. John Dixon came to our rescue and was our hero of the day when he supported a tall post beside a very wobbly stile!

So all in all the walk turned out a success and I believe all the participants had a good day.   Beryl
