Saturday 18th September - Millbrook Circular Walk 4 Miles. Leader Nita McCarthy

Eleven walkers including Programme Secretary Yvonne Bevan on her first club walk since Lockdown. We were so lucky to have such a late lovely Summers Day.
We left the car park and passed  the Duke of Bedford cottages and a new housing development which was very much in keeping with the older properties.
Amazing views of Marston Vale as we took a slow ascent up to Millbrook Church and then back down to the road on a very steep path.

We safely crossed the main road and again slowly ascended an idyllic walk through the forest. The more able did walk ahead and waited for us. We crossed the A 507 at the traffic lights. We continued round the edge of Warren Wood. Had a banana / coffee stop on the steps. Also plenty of water stops on the way. 

It was a bit muddy in places , nowhere near as bad as the last time. Hi Vis Jacket on to make sure we had a safe crossing back over the A507. We continued around the perimeter of Millbrook Golf Course. Had another stop to take in the view over Marston Vale and did a very slow  descent back to the car park.

A really enjoyable walk for us all.       Nita McCarthy
