Dunstable Downs Walk


Off message but yesterday Gill and I went on a lovely circular 4.5 mile around Dunstable Downs, Chilterns.  Superb views across the Vale of Aylesbury. One hour drive from East London. 

Started off at the National Trust visitor centre. There was scores of families enjoying the wind and the sunshine flying their kites. 

First half of walk was quiet country paths where we hardly saw a soul. One short but busy stretch of road. The Whipsnade Tree Cathedral was worth an explore. This is a variety of trees planted in the shape of a Cathedral by a survivor of the First World War to remember his friends who had been killed. 

The magnificent final mile was along the crest of the Downs back to the flying kites. Quick pint in the Beer garden of "The Farmers Boy.
