Walk Report

Saxon Salt, Tuesday 19th April 2016
9 walkers, 12 miles - leader Ron Williamson
On a glorious spring day, what does your heart desire?
A walk in the wide-open spaces of Essex
A coffee stop by the side of the canal (Paper Mill Bridge)
Extended walks through bluebell woods
Good company
Far from the madding crowd with only a handful of other walkers to compete with
A lunchtime pub that is actually open (OK OK don't get picky you can't have everything)
Visit and guided tour of a restoration of an old Mill (Beeleigh Falls near Maldon
Finding that the village pub that you come out to on the High Street at Maldon is in fact a Wetherspoons (delirium)
A bus service to Chelmsford Station running on time
Ron's walk had it all, almost, and a very good time was had by all (almost)
