On a cold but sunny morning 15 of us set out from Ampthill Great Park, West Car Park, along the ridge overlooking the Bedford Vale. The view has changed over the years and is now marred somewhat by huge warehouses and the Anaerobic Digester which was belching grey smoke.

We proceeded through the sun dappled woods to Holy Walk and on through the Church and Town Council Burial Grounds. We arrived at The Market Square, Ampthill in good time to take part in the well attended two minute silence which was overseen by the Ampthill Parish Church Vicar and Town Mayor.

We regrouped and walked up through Park Hill and back into the Park for a coffee break at “The Coffee Lodge" After coffee some of the group returned to their cars while 8 regrouped & continued over to The Firs and Coopers Hill. All in all it was a good morning enhanced by the Autumn sunshine.
