Seven of us including two friends of Claire’ s and prospective Red Ropers, Kerry and Ags, walked on the Chilterns for the spring except the spring hadn’t arrived. Daffodils not open, only catkins, and a chill wind.
We walked from Saunderton to West Wycombe via Bradenham Manor. Pleasant hills and woods which look promising for bluebells later in the year.
Tea in the Hell Fire Caves cafe in West Wycombe , the site of caves where Sir Francis Dashwood held black masses in the 18th Century for his friends including the Prince of Wales and Benjamin Franklin.
We took the train back from High Wycombe.
