Walk Report

Bishops Stortford Circular, Sunday 6th March 2016
12 walkers, 20 miles - leader Lonica Vanclay
12 keen walkers and 2 enthusiastic dogs set off from Bishops Stortford with me for the 22 miles - although 2 people left us - for good reasons! - at lunchtime. Lunch at Stansted Mountfichet was remarkably quick with few lunching mothers in evidence and having kept a fair pace we made it back with 4 minutes to wait for the 17.09 train.
The sun peeped through occasionally, the rain and predicted hail held off and even the mud wasn't present throughout the whole walk. We saw horses, sheep, deer, lots of Ryan airplanes at very close quarters and a few other walkers - not to mention the villages, fields, canal and woods.
