Coleshill circular walk no.4
Finish: As above
Length: 10.87 km / 6.75 miles
Weather: Sunny, with a cold wind.
This is based on a walk from the Cicerone guidebook, Walking in the Chilterns, route no. 21. I did a few slight variations and started from Colleshill and not Penn Ponds.
Due to all the rain in the past few days, this was a very muddy walk and from that point of view not very enjoyable. However, I was glad to get out and exercise before the next day of eating and drinking
The path heading out of Herts Wood looked more like a stream.
I have not come across alpacas in the same field before, so was not sure about their temperament. These two were okay, but there was another who stared at me and took steps towards me, so I gave them all a wide berth.
Mud was to feature heavily on this walk, infact there were not many sections of the route that were dry and easy to walk on.
Looking over towards Fragnall Lane and Glory Farm... I think.
A Chiltern 'clump'.
Looking back at the Chiltern 'clump'. I think these are where chalk or flint pits were dug, but not filled in and the trees serve as a reminder to the farmer not to plough that area.
Looking back, I had walked from left to right along the hedge.
I walked down Wood Lane, crossed over Penn Street and up into the woods towards Penn House.
These 'preserved', intricately carved doors were at the back of Penn House.
