Satirday 2nd December Sue's Harlington Christmas Tree Festival Walk

This 5 mile walk stated from Harlington Village Hall car park at 10am
7 eager members joined me on a very chilly crisp frosty morning. Well Done!
We walked across to Bury Orchard and followed what my grandchildren call the ‘fairy walk’ to Lincoln Way where we met Tony.R
We then headed  down the steep track,  which was muddy in places, to Willow Farm and along Bottoms Road branching off through a small copse where we all said  how ‘clear’ the running river was! It caused quite a laugh between us.  Through the copse looking at the flowers and webs covered in frost

Even though it was very chilly we managed to stop for coffee before crossing the new bridge heading 
towards Moleskin Hill sign post.
Looking back at the freezing fog over towards Sharpenhoe Clappers.
We followed the path through the woods, muddy in places, ducking under a fallen tree. Chatting and enjoying each others company.
Crossing the field back down towards Lower End avoiding the muddy field we retraced the path and found a better track still crisp with ice in places.
Through the woods towards Bury Orchard and then to the car park where we changed our boots and went to the Harlington Christmas tree festival in St Mary’s Church.

 Lots of decorated Christmas trees to guess what pantomime they were decorated to from children to adults. There was also beautiful craft stalls, a raffle, live music and we sat enjoying the refreshments.
