Long Walk 17th May 2022 – Chimney Meadows to May Bush Inn, Newbridge – 7 miles

The walk started from the Chimney Meadows car park.  The terrain was across meadows and quiet lanes.  This led us through a small wood by the River Thames and on to Shifford Lock.  After crossing a tall bridge over the river, the walk continued alongside the river to Newbridge.  Swimming on the river were numerous ducks with large clutches of ducklings, also geese with broods of goslings.  Flying overhead were black beaked gulls and egrets.  Reaching the May Bush, we sat at the outside picnic tables to eat our lunch and purchased refreshing cold drinks which were welcome as it had turned into a very hot day. By the time we were ready to leave numerous boats were cruising on the Thames. We traced our footsteps back to the cars in brilliant sunshine.  Our next long walk will be on 21st June starting from Guiting Power.  Pam
