Through Bucknell Wood
So far we had kept relatively dry, but the mist at the top of Bucknell Wood soon had us putting on hats and gloves. We continued along the farm track to Stowe Hill and eventually found ourselves above Ragged Kingdom where we made a wide circle and dropped down into Stowe village where we prudently stopped in the church porch for our lunch.

We continued to the bat sanctuary and then back along the forest track to Bucknell. Just over 10 miles and with the weather improving it was hardly a surprise that when we all arrived home the sun came out!
