Overview

A change from the published Essendon loop, which is rather wet in places.

Let's brighten up another grey day with an easy going morning walk from Bourne End farm along quiet country lanes - hardly any mud!  Join us afterwards for mulled wine, mince pies and brandy cream!  

There are no stiles, but if everyone is capable of climbing over a farm gate it will save some busy road walking.

We will break at the Coach and Horses, Newgate street.  There are bar facilities and toilets there, but boots must be removed before going inside.  There is a kiosk in the carpark selling hot drinks and snacks.

Park between the first and second gates of Bourne End Farm, SG13 8NH, ///prompting.minute.forgot.

My husband, Bill, and I are self isolating, so please keep a reasonable distance from the leader.  If indulging in the most willingly offered mulled wine and mince pies, please leave used crockery and utensils on the patio table outside the farmhouse.  There is a toilet and handwashing facilities in the farmyard rather than the farmhouse
