Jean led 6 of us on a lovely walk along the Chess valley on a warm spring day. We passed through Latimer village, where on the pretty village green stands the memorial to Villebois, a horse which saved Lord Chesham of Latimer in battle. The mansion Latimer House is now a conference centre. Following the course of the river Chess we negotiated our way across a few boggy patches to the watercress farm where some ice creams were purchased. The spring flowers were everywhere – celandine, daffodils, white violets. Lunch was at Sarratt, where the Cock Inn was busy with Mother’s Day lunches. Crossing over the river we made our way to Chorleywood, passing 3 alpacas in a field, to return to London.
