The Old New GR - Ldrs: Roger & Margaret Skerman - 11th July 2013


A glorious sunny day - the old and new routes of the Greensand Ridge -  what is the tree - a hazelnut? - one of the BBN benches on the GR - Mary's white horse - mid-morning break - Margaret's delicious birthday biscuits for Roger - Adrian checking out the Eddie Stobarts on the M1 - Woburn Estate and Safari Park - lunch by the cricket pitch at Eversholt - back thru the woods to see the new Center Parcs taking shape - they have villas, not chalets, in case we confuse them with Butlins - a long hot day for the security man - man plotting OS map revisions - 16 miles, 18 walker. A super walk from Roger and Margaret, lovely wide paths thru open country, parkland and shady woods.  Good to have Ruth walking with us again.
