Robert Slater led a walk from Bletchley on Sunday 15 May 2016. He was inconvenienced in his preparations by changes which were afoot at the pub where he intended to have lunch so a late amendment to the programme had to put up on the internet and e mailed to those who have provided e mail addresses. The following is what appeared on the club website home page a week or so before the walk.

On the day itself both our leader and Antoinette Adkins were ready with her cameras and have kindly provided the following delightful photographic memories of the day.

Apparently some cyclists were not following the guidance for sharing space with walkers so the appropriate notice was brought to their attention!!
