8 walkers met at Kents Hill Park to walk for 5 miles on nice, not muddy, paths. There were several football matches going on nearby but there was plenty of parking available. We walked along the northern edge of the park before turning north to Monkston. We continued to Milton Keynes Village, then turned left past the old church. This path led to the River Ouzel just south of Willen Lake. We crossed the river & followed it to the old fish ponds, some now full of water due to the recent rains. We stopped by the interpretation board for a group photo when Beryl had a problem with her ancient map.
We continued along the river then after about 1.5 miles we crossed to the other side to follow the path passing the Open University on our right. We walked under Brickhill Street to enter the wooded western end of Kents Hill park & hence back to our cars.
