11 of us gathered in the Green Dene car park under leaden grey skies although as the first part of the walk was though the trees, the sky wasn’t that visible. It wasn’t long before the clouds dissipated and the sun came out to give a very pleasant day.
The walk took us up hills and down dales, through woods and across meadows with some splendid views across the Thames Valley, with London just visible in the far distance. Sadly, there was ample evidence of ash dieback, a disease that is wreaking havoc with one of Britain’s native trees. The attached photos show those of you that didn’t do the walk what you missed. Many thanks go to Jenny for leading yet another great walk.
