Walk Report

Welwyn Garden City Circular, Sunday 22nd March 2015
8 walkers, 22 miles - leader Steve Plested
An elite group of seven joined Steve for his exploration of the Hertfordshire countryside.
It was a good day weather-wise and the first walk for a while with virtually no mud. All participants said they enjoyed the countryside, weather and lack of mud. This more than made up for the disappointment of not needing towels to dry feet after the river crossing - which was at its lowest level.
