Walk Report

Newport to Great Chesterford, Saturday 18th June 2016
10 walkers, 18.5 miles - leader Keith Lane
If you are in Saffron Walden in time for morning coffee to go to Molly's coffee & cake shop in the High Street. The service is warm and relaxed and the coffee is very good.
If you are in the village of Ashdon in time for lunch then you will find that the publican of the Rose & Crown will cheerfully allow you to sit in their garden and eat your own food.
If you are in Great Chesterford in time for tea you will find the service at The Crown and Thistle public house swift efficient and friendly.
So how to get there? By way of big skies, open expanse of countryside, massive fields of wheat and barley & walking highways. Even on a damp grey day, more in keeping with October than June, the majesty of this Cambridgeshire/Essex border country shone through.
