Ashridge Boundary Path

A fabulous walking day. We took the bridle path behind the Bridgewater monument and down to Barleycoombe, skirting Aldbury to Clipperdown and back along the Ashridge Boundary path. About two hours in glorious autumn sunshine. The apple tree on the old drover's road was laden with Coxes Orange pippins and we managed to scrump a couple. In the distance the bleached grass blew and shimmered on Pitstone Hill and the Ridgeway beckoned. And good company: one of those perfect times where we finished each other's sentences, discovered we like all the same things and thoroughly enjoyed sharing the countryside we are so blessed with only 25 miles from London. In amongst the debris of the wheatfield these little wild pansies or Heartsease (sigh) and Speedwell.
