We are a hardy lot: heavy rain and wind in the night and only a promise of lighter drizzle and yet ten ramblers turned up at the village hall fully clad in waterproofs. Much of the early part of the walk was on the firm surface of the Icknield Way bridleway towards the M1, then turning right at Cowbridge Farm, walked briefly along the Luton Road, turning off to pass through the new spinney and past Manor Farm. Four soggy-looking horses eyed us up then galloped into the next field.
We stopped for a short drinks break by the pond of the golf course: it was too damp and windy to linger. Finally, we passed Crowbush farm and Kimberwell to Toddington High Street, where several of the group headed for the café.
