Walk Report

Round and Round the Garden, Saturday 10th November 2018
13 walkers, 17 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
A beautiful autumn morning with bright warm sunshine and wonderful tree colours for our route along the Hertfordshire Way passing 3 pillboxes, through Northaw and wealthy Cuffley to lunch at Little Berkhamsted. A passing shower as we left set the scene for a spectacular weather change; ominous clouds rolled in, the temperature dropped and by the time we stopped for group photos (see Bola's handiwork on Facebook site) at a war memorial and later a modern Trojan Horse, we knew that the storm was not far off. We just reached the isolated church in Rectory wood for sanctuary as the heavens opened. We managed to avoid the worst but now feeling quite moist decided to cut out the loop around the Garden City and instead finish at Welwyn North which was just as well as more rain and early darkness were just on the horizon.
