Saturday 28th October St Paul’s Walden - Hitch Wood led by Beryl.

This 7 mile walk started from the village of Whitwell and had 3 walkers.
Leaving the village we crossed the river Mimram and continued up to The Bury, before walking down the driveway to cross the Whitwell Rd.

Walking up the hill and through the avenue of trees, stopping and looking back offered a good view of the main house.


Continuing on towards Norton Street Lane, we headed towards East Hill farm where we had a short break next to the duck pond.
Past Middle EastHall farm we joined Shirley Green Lane heading on for Langley End.
Once again crossing the Whitwell Rd, we entered Hitch Wood where we stopped for a well earned picnic break.

We were then off once again heading towards Stagenhoe house, which is right under the flight path for Luton airport and very noisy when the planes flew over.
Leaving Stagenhoe behind we made our way along the tracks to Chalkleys Wood and Little Bury Wood, past the Whitwell living theatre.
Stopping at Emily’s tea shop for another well earned tea break, we were nearly back at Whitwell.


Crossing the river once again, one of the walker’s could not resist, and just had to jump in and clean their boots off.


Now heading back through the village, we were soon at our cars for the end of a very enjoyable walk on a nice bright sunny autumn day.
