Baldock Circular (Part 1), 24/6/17
This was a decent 12 mile walk in North-East Hertfordshire, but, unfortunately, only half of it got recorded. Just as the walker was approaching the attractive village of Ashwell, with the highest church tower in England, the handicam decided to seize up! Or, the lens shutter did. Very annoying really as Ashwell would've provided some great shots, on a decent summer's day. The walker also got way-laid early on as well, so not the best of days, but it was a decent walk, none-the-less. An unusual yellow bird was seen whilst on the wrong path, and this is still awaiting identification by the RSPB. It could've been a fairly common Yellow Hammer, a less common Serin, or, an escaped Canary! (Turns out it was none of those, but a Yellow Wagtail!).
Baldock Circular (part 2). 11/5/18.
Following on from part one last summer, when the handicam seized up, this 9 mile walk starts from the optional ending at Ashwell and Morden station. It then opts for a more traffic-free variant down Shire Balk (the county boundary) into the attractive village of Ashwell, which was about to celebrate its annual 'At Home' week-end. The River Cam starts here After lunch, outside the large 14th century village church, it's on along field boundaries to the lofty heights of Newnham Hill (84m) and decent views of the surrounding countryside. The walker then reaches the isolated church of St Mary Magdalene, Caldecote,which has recently been restored. Continuing on through Newnham; across a large Rape field; past a rubbish dump and then reaching a pleasant nature reserve. The station is reached shortly after. Though this was a walk to complete the missing views of Part 1, it's actually a decent walk in itself , thus, providing walkers with options. It's best done in the drier months, if possible, as it could be a 'trudge' otherwise.
