Most of this walk was along gravelled tracks which was good news as we all know about Harlington mud! But the first part, getting out of Harlington across fields to the Willow Farm track, was a bit of a quagmire.
Later there was plenty of rough grass to scrape off the worst, and the boot ended up quite clean.
Instead we headed along the John Bunyan Trail making for a fallen log and we were disconcerted to see another rambling group standing having their coffee break. They were the U3A from Northwood. Aren’t we lucky to have such nice walking on our doorstep!! They were not at our chosen logs: the advantage of local knowledge.
We settled down on the logs for our coffee as Tony P received a text from Tony R to say his hospital visit had gone well and he was back home. We were all thinking of you, Tony!
The return trip headed for the hill bypassing the Bunyan Oak, and inevitably our cleaned boots picked up more Harlington Clay. We spread out somewhat and waited at the top to let everyone catch up and have a breather.
