Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all have a wonderful 2009!

This morning I did yet another local walk, which took me about 2.5 hours. I walked down Hollicks Lane to Church End, then turned right and followed the lane to the Lynch.  I then followed a path parallel to the A5 that took me to Markyate. From there I took the path that led across fields to Dedmansey Wood (where I saw Buzzards again) and then went through Byslips Wood to reach Byslips Road.

I continued along the footpath on the other side, across a large open field to reach a wood on the edge of Holywell. I turned right, then took  a path going left alongside Buckwood Lane. Where the path turned left to enter Holywell, I continued on along the lane to reach Whipsnade Heath. I then returned home by taking the path through the woods of the Heath and crossing a couple of fields to reach Common Road, Kensworth, about a quarter of a mile from my home.

It was a completely grey and overcast morning, with the temperature barely above freezing. But it staill made for an enjoyable shorter walk.
