Walk on 10th April 2018 starting from Church Hanborough

It was unusual to have a wet morning for our walk, but there were still 14 of us.  We made our way to Church Hanborough and parked up near to the church and the Hand and Shears Inn, where we were going to coffee later.  Paulene was waiting for us and was welcomed to our group.  We set off on this short circular walk around the edge of Pinsley Wood. Today it was mud and floods; it was deemed that this was the muddiest and wettest walk of all time. It was a challenge and an adventure getting through the floods and caused plenty of chatter and laughter. There were a few wood anemones and primroses to be seen;  the bluebell leaves were just starting to appear and will be a picture in the coming weeks.  On other parts of the walk flowering cherry trees and forsythia bushes brightened the day, as did sheep and lambs in the fields.  The walk is flat with no gates or stiles, and there is no livestock on route. After changing our shoes, we had refreshments at the Inn before making our way back to Carterton.  Thank you to the car drivers and the group for making the walk fun.  Our next short walk is on the 8thMay and will be a Lechlade circular.  Pam
