Saturday 13th May. Great Missenden

Fourteen hikers turned out for our walk around Great Missenden. We followed the South Bucks Way and Chiltern Trails. We passed some pretty villages including Little and Great Hampden, Bryant Bottom and Prestwood.  Our walk took us through fields, woodland and meadows. We saw blue bells and, primroses and red kites. We had lunch at The Hampden Arms; Peter Wee was looking forward to dining here but sadly was unable to make the walk. We were served very tasty food and the service was excellent so my thanks to Constantine and Louise Lucas and the staff.
The walkers who had the picnic were able to see the ground being prepared for a cricket game. The game was in getting into full flow as we left Great Hampden. We walked through Angling Spring Wood and down to Great Missenden Abbey, where Gillian and Stuart got married. Stuart was able to relive the happy day and we were able to enjoy the beautiful grounds.  We made back to the Station where Ken joined us. My apologies to Ken he did not know the changes to travel time.
