Thursday 10th August > Aspley Woods walk led by Penny

This 4 mile walk had 18 walkers and started from Aspley Guise Recreation Ground.
Using the alleyway between the houses which were leading us towards Aspley Wood.

On entering the woods we found ourselves beneath the tree canopy giving us a cooling shade as we walked along.

Some of the tracks were still very muddy from the recent rain we have been experiencing, however we made our way through these and had a water stop before crossing the Woburn Rd.

 Once refreshed, we passed Fullers Earth Lodge before making our way up into Old Wavendon Heath

Some inclines were tackled before reaching the top

A coffee break was taken in a nice shaded area with seating and branches for the group to rest on.

Carrying on down the incline through the woods, we again crossed the Woburn Rd, continuing walking we came across the dirt bike tracks, which we being used by some bikers giving a demonstration of their skills.
We then rejoined the track’s back through  the woods that would eventually lead us back through the alleyway’s and onto the recreation ground for the end of a very enjoyable walk on a nice warm sunny day, where we were grateful for the shade offered by walking through the woods.
