On a nice fine day we had a great leisurely 6 mile walk through woods, meadows and open heath land with several stops for various reasons, but unfortunately we had only 7 walkers.
The walk started from Longslade Lane car park and walked eastwards until the main road was reached. This road was crossed and we climbed the hill along sandy tracks.. Soon we came to a piles of logs where we stopped for our coffee break. We then descended into Woburn Sands and crossed the double roundabout. We paused to view the marker to show Greg Rutherford's winning long jump distance. We then crossed the road and entered Edgewick farm grounds. We stopped for a moment by the carved seat.

We continued on through the woods to reach Bow Brickhill church where we stopped for our picnic.
After this we took the path through the golf course with holes on either side. We turned left past the clubhouse and crossed the road to enter more woods. This path led to Longslade Lane. Two of our number crossed the road and climbed the steep bank whilst the others turned left to Sandy Lane and entered Aspley Heath via a gate. We followed the path back to the car path where the other two were waiting.
