Milton Keynes Boundary Walk – Day 8

Well, I finished the MKBW today!

It was another nice walk on a very pleasant day for walking. I started off along Weasel Lane, part of the SUSTRANS national cycle network. There was then about half a mile of nasty road walking, but then a nice bit of bridleway. Another much shorter road section, then a really nice and long bit of bridleway. Most of this I’d walked almost two years agon on the North Bucks Way – the new development of Milton Keynes has edged even closer to the path since then. There were some new houses just behind the hedge on the right of the path at one point, and I passed some more new houses being built a bit further along.

When I finally stepped left over a stile in a hedge to leave the bridleway, there was suddenly a really nice view ahead of me. The path sloped downhill through a ‘set aside’ field to a wood, with further fields beyond. The path through one of the ‘set aside’ fields was somewhat patchy, but I soon reached a cement drive and then a road. The rest of the walk was through a variety of fields – cows, sheep, hay meadows, corn fields. I again suddenly came upon a nice view at a stile, looking down over the Ouse Valley.

I’ll write my journal entry for this walk tomorrow. I’ll do a couple of local walks this week, and hope to update my web site with the MKBW journal (and loads of new wildflower stuff!) by the end of Sunday. I’ll keep you posted!
