Walk Report

Gerrards Cross, Sunday 28th June 2009
15 walkers, 21 miles - leader Steve Plested
15 people gathered at the station at 9.30 on a very bright and sunny day. The route rather fortuitously involved quite a lot of woodland hence generally avoiding the fierce sun. The walk was a series of 3 interlocking loops, the first taking in the scenic village of Hedgerley and included the sighting of a number of red kites. The second crossed Farnham common and Burnham Beeches (Robin Prince of Thieves was filmed here) to the lunch stop at Littleworth Common. The group split between 2 pubs for lunch and then rejoined to pass through a duck farm and circumnavigate Odds Farm, a local tourist attraction for families. More woods eventually took us back to Hedgerley where we briefly visited a local nature reserve. Finally after negotiating a rather muddy and smelly tunnel under the M40 open fields took us back to the outskirts of Gerrards Cross.
