Thursday 3rd August Maulden > Maulden Woods walk led by Tony M.

This 6 mile walk had 12 walkers and started from the George pub in Maulden.
Leaving the car park we made our way up to and through the church, then joining the track taking us towards Green End with views over Maulden & surrounding countryside.


We followed one of the trails through Maulden Woods passing by Clayhill cottages and joining the Greensand Ridge.

We came to a memorial stone, which we were reliably informed by the leader was for Dick Turpin's  horse (believe that if you will !)

On towards Limbersey Lane, where some road walking was required,
We then turned to walk through Brickhill Pastures and in to King Wood where we stopped for a well earned coffee break.

Suitably refreshed, we joined the trail leading us down to Kings Farm, now with the farmhouse all boarded up and no cattle in the fields.
On past the highlight of the day, a couple of donkeys in their small paddock.
Joining the back streets of Maulden, we arrived back at the George for the end of a very enjoyable walk,
On an overcast cast day with some warm sunshine at times, along with a nice cooling breeze.
Some of the group then retired to the pub for some well earned lunch & refreshments.
