Saturday 19th November Ridgemont to Woburn, 9.5miles, 6 ramblers, led by Bob and Celia

 This was a lovely walk on a lovely autumn day. Yesterday's sun had dried up much of the mud and we enjoyed the walk past Segenhoe Church, picking up the Greensand's Ridge Walk to Eversholt church, where we had a tea break in the cricket grounds.


 From there we walkedpast Linden Lake and through Woburn deer park. There were large herds of deer, the stags that had been successful in the rutting looking very satisfied with their harem of does. The lakes were covered in swans, canada geese and other waterfowl. 


We sniffed the meaty smell at the biker's shop: they were having a 'meet' and the cafe was open, but we passed that by and headed to The Bell

The pub was decked out in Christmas lights, tree and berries and had a very festive appearance as we ate our sandwiches or soup. All too soon we had to finish the final 3 miles, through the other side of the deer park and past the safari park, but the time flew and we returned back the the cars feeling well exercised.
