MK Deaf Rambling: Photos from Hexton Circular walk Saturday April 13th 2019

Photos of MK Deaf Rambling group from their walk last Saturday 13th April 2019.
 
Circular Hill Walking from Hexton, including Lilley Hoo, 12.5 miles, 5 hours overall.
 
Quote from Steve Lawrence:
 
“As we proceeded our walk from the Raven Pub in the village of Hexton to the place of Barton-le-Clay including the few survived thatched-roof cottages and by the church, we then ascended to top of Barton Hills to allow us to overlook the Barton-le-clay below. Continued few miles up to the next Warden Hill where the place of Luton town can be seen below and beyond and then walked down to reach the old fashioned Lilley Arms pub at Lilley Hoo, but less cosy feeling, for a break to re-energised us. We resumed to walk along the way across the chalked farmland throughout. Suddenly there was the hailstones rained down upon us, only for briefly time. Till we reached the triangular pillar and summit of Deacon Hills, via Telegraph Hill and Pegsdon hills. We viewed over the fantastic beautiful Bedfordshire plains and into Hertfordshire countrysides so stunningly. We began to descent the hill as the last of the hills visited. Suddenly we ran down fast cautiously all the way to the bottom of hill hilariously, which reminds us in our childhood.
No doubt it was one of the best place of North Chilterns countryside to seen on the walk that we had experienced with enjoyment indeed. Came off the hill we arrived Hexton and entered the cosy Lavender Tea room of Hexton hall to comfort us!“
