Short Walk at Bampton 8th March 2002
It was a lovely sunny morning but a bit chilly. 20 members met by Bampton Church for the walk. Parts of Downton Abbey were shot at the Church and surrounding area.
Hazel and I went to recce the walk at the weekend and decided it was too wet, slippery and muddy to take the group on. Hazel, knowing Bampton well suggested we walk round some of the streets, lanes and alleys (there are just so many in Bampton). We also found a pathway round the outside one of the new estates which was really well landscaped and a very pleasant area to walk. After the walk most went to Burford Garden Centre for refreshments; unfortunately for us it was very busy and after waiting for some considerable time several left before being served. We will do the walk which was advertised later in the year and hopefully it will be suitable to walk.
Thank you to those who walked and to the car drivers.
Our next short walk will be on 12th April in the Coleshill area. Pam
