Thursday 13th April Westoning

This 5 mile walk was led by Maureen & Malcolm with 10 walkers
Setting off in the bright sunshine we made our way out of the village and on towards the road that passes under the railway line.
Continuing along the road we made our way up to Upper Sampshill farm, where due to the weather there were excellent views off the Sharpenhoe Clappers and surrounding countryside. 

Making our way through the farm, we passed Portobello farm, where for once we were not greeted with the sound of barking dogs,


After our deserved break for coffee we passed a field of sheep, being guarded by a lama.

The tracks towards the water tower at Pulloxhill were quite firm considering the recent rain we have had

After a short rest at the water tower, we set off along the road towards Higham Bury and the magnificent Georgian house in the grounds.
Once again we were rewarded with some excellent views of the countryside, this time out in the direction of Flitwick & Maulden.

Continuing on through the fields we made our way back to join the Sampshill Rd for our journey back into Westoning 


For the end of a nice leisurely walk on a nice sunny but windy at times walk, that was thoroughly enjoyed by all walkers.

Track of walk, walked in anti-clockwise direction
