15th February 2015: Chalfont and Latimer circuit along the Ches valley

Seven of us including Helen, a stray from Ramblers, enjoyed an early spring walk from Chalfont and Latimer to Chorleywood through the early spring countryside.
HorsesCatkins and snowdrops are out and green just beginning in the trees.  We saw a flock of sheep galloping towards the farmer who was bringing them some food – no need for a dog if you can bribe them.
Muddy walkWe lunched in the graveyard at Sarratt and topped up with drinks and apple crumble at the Cock Inn.  The downside was mud – as in picture – a Slough of Despond.  We thought of continuing to Rickmansworth and settled for Chorleywood.  Great conversation, especially Mike’s tales of teaching in China.
