Thursday 17th March - Sundon Hills led by Tony R

This 4.5 mile walk started from Sundon Hills Country Park car park and had 9 walkers.
It was a lovely day but due to the previous day's heavy rain there was a fair amount of mud in places.
The first part of the walk involved a lot of steps, both down and up.

After negotiating the steps we came to a more or less level path,  but had to divert into a field due to a muddy section of the path. We crossed the Sharpenhoe road and walked roughly parallel to it to reach Sharenhoe Clappers car park where we stopped at picnic tables and benches for our late coffee break.
We then re-crossed the road and walked across a meadow before entering Moleskin woods. We walked past the area known as The Firs (no fir trees in sight) to the new steps which we used in the opposite direction a few weeks ago. This led us onto more pasture land, today devoid of sheep.  The car park soon came into view however the fields we quite undulating.
