Thursday 4th July Toddington > Milton Bryan 7 miles led by Tony P

This 7 mile walk had 8 walkers
Starting from the village hall, we followed the path leading us down to Park Rd before crossing over into Long Lane for about 300 yards. We then left the lane by a footpath and on through fields of rape, ready to be harvested.

Finding the path through the rape was difficult as it was all overgrown.

We passed Lodge Farm & Herne Green Farm, almost doing a circumnavigation of Toddington Manor.

A well earned coffee break was taken before walking past Happy Land farm, following the tracks through the fields we came to a wooded glade that offered some shade from the sunshine.
However,  many of the tracks were now overgrown with long grass, making walking difficult.
Continuing our way onto Cuckoopit spinney again with the long grass and this time with the addition of very boggy mud holding up progress, once we tiptoed out way through we came out onto Park Rd.
After some road walking, we came to Milton Bryan,  where we stopped for our picnic lunch by the duck pond.

Already their to greet us were Joan & Viv, who were joining with us for a nice afternoon picnic, in the sunshine.

Once suitable refreshed, we continued on our way.
Walking on the path that leads through the back garden of one of the houses, before entering the fields and on towards Town Farm, we were now keeping almost parallel with the road to arrive back at Toddington, very hot and almost worn out.

Toruun, Tony R, Beryl, Wendy, Richard, Debbie, John D & Tony P

For what was the end of a very enjoyable walk, on a nice sunny day with a cooling breeze.

Track of walk, walked in anti-clockwise direction
