Saturday 29th April Ampthill / Maulden walk,

This 6 mile walk was led by Sharon with 4 walkers.
Meeting along the lane leading to the well tended allotment’s, four intrepid walkers started too made our way from Ampthill, out along the tracks and into Duck End on the outskirts of Maulden.
Down the lane with some very well tended thatched cottages, through too the new housing and more well tended allotments, we continued along the Silsoe Rd until we reached Rosedale Farm.
Turning left we continued along the road & tracks, before crossing the Clophill Rd and heading down towards Green End.
Passing around the back of the barn conversion’s at Old Farm, this gave a view of the new housing being built in Maulden.

We made our way past Maulden Grange and up towards the church where we were to have our well earned picnic stop in the church yard.

Leaving the church, we followed the tracks which brought us up to where the donkeys were in the field..

Crossing over the road we passed Kings Farm, which was very quiet with no cattle in the yard or fields.

Bird song was in abundance during the walk, with time being taken to try and identify them.
Walked back through Ampthill coming to the end of a very pleasant walk on a nice bright sunny day, which was enjoyed by all the walkers.
