Thursday 6 th July. Turvey to Carlton walk led by John W.

This walk of about 5.5 miles was enjoyed by 12 walkers and began from the car park of The Three Fyshes in Turvey, north Bedfordshire.
The walk started by passing through the grassy fields of the Turvey Abbey for about a mile before meeting and crossing the busy A428 onto the track beside Priory Farm. The main part of the walk followed wide paths through fields of ripening wheat, barley and oats and also fields with tall swaying grasses. Tall thistles left unchecked were a major attraction to swarms of butterflies.

The walk then headed toward the village of Carlton with the attraction of the Emmaus complex where it was all agreed that a coffee and quick look round the various shops would provide a welcome break. 

 We left at 12:30 and once again followed the lovely well kept tracks between arable crops back towards Turvey. 8of us then enjoyed a pleasant lunch in The Three Fyshes.
