Aynho Long Walk 10th August 2017
Summer paid us a visit this morning as eleven of us set off down Green Lane The views across the valley were beautifully clear. The track along the valley at the end of Green Lane was its usual puddled self after heavy rain. The crop had been harvested in the main field but as we left the track and followed the path through the next field the crop was still waiting for the combine. The final field up towards the stone pits was harvested and ploughed so our boots got quite clogged here. We continued down through Charlton Village and back via the camp field and the track along the ridge back to Green Lane and the pavilion. There were some sunflowers in bloom near the camp in the wild flower area, and in sharp contrast, a deer skeleton by the new manure heap. Anita is away so thanks to Kathy we had some refreshments so we could sit round and chat to finish off the morning.
