MK Deaf Rambling – Photos from Chinnor & Bledlow Circular Walk – 5th October 2019

Photos from the Milton Keynes Deaf Rambling group on the Chinnor & Bledlow Circular walk on 5th October 2019 with summary from walk leader Steve Lawrence:

 Luckily It was dry cloudy morning and surprisingly warm, not even a drop of rain at all!
From the Bledlow pub in the village, we started to walk along the rolling hills; some sloped steeply uphill and downhill; throughout the beautiful unspoilt colourful autumnal beechwoods, chalk downland and valleys. We observed the local attractive villages with their traditional bricks and flint cottages nestle around the medieval St Mary church in the vicinity of petty Radnage interestingly. 
The most dramatic feature of the area is the chalk escarpment, a ridge and open pastures with sheep grazed.
We spotted a glimpse of the prey birds flew over the meadow, probably Red-kite or whatever but were unable to identified them specifically with uncertainty because we are unprofessional birdwatchers!
One more hill to go, we ascended steadily up the scrub covered slopes of Lodge Hill, with panoramic views of Vale of Aylesbury fantastically before returning to car parking of Bledlow village.
After a brief tea break at the local pub, we leisurely walked up in a short distance to the ironed gate besides the Church and then we descended to the bottom of Lyde Garden secret. As we observed, this water garden was built on the site of the natural springs that surface close to the church, consisting the board-walks and ornaments set in a combination of ponds and water plants with delightful.
It was nice long relaxing walk with enjoyment indeed “.
