Thursday 21st March Streatley - Keech Hospice 7½ miles 15 walkers led by Tony P

Meeting up at the allotment car park we commenced our walk by joining the Icknield Way trail out towards Smithcombe Hill, leaving the trail just before the Sharpenhoe Clappers.

Neal leading Richard & Jill

Wendy & Brenda leading Sue et al

Crossing the Sharpenhoe Rd, we followed our old friend the John Bunyan trail, taking us behind the houses in Streatley, passing behind the church and on past the village duck pond before entering Streatley Bury.

Joining with the Icknield way trail again we walked on towards Keech Hospice where a well earned coffee break was taken.


On down Great Bramingham Lane we crossed the busy A6 Barton Rd to join the parish boundary track up towards the golf club.
Keeping on the Icknield Way we stopped for a water break at Maulden Firs.

Then through the firs to join the Chiltern Way on our way back to Streatley, once again crossing the busy A6.
Walking through the village we returned to the car park for the end of a thoroughly enjoyable walk.
On an overcast but very mild day.

Track of walk, walked in anti-clockwise direction.
