Walk Report

Up the Clappers, Saturday 23rd February 2019
17 walkers, 18.8 miles – leader Bola Baruwa
17 walkers including the leader, Bola, enjoyed a lovely 18 miles (18.8 to be precise) hilly walk in the Chilterns; starting & finishing at Harlington station, Bedfordshire. We set out in thick fog which was soon lifted by the cheerful spirit of the group; the sun came out and stayed with us for the rest of the day. The star attraction was Sharpenhoe Clappers, an ancient woodland and chalk escarpment with fantastic views. The group had a lunch stop in Lilley Arms, where I was reliably informed that the beer was good. We moved at such good pace with plenty of daylight left to find our way to Barrel Vault Wetherspoon in St. Pancras Station for Dave Williams’ birthday drink! No head touch was required in the end!!!!
