North London Rise and Shine
On 27th March six us of us got up full of the joys of Spring and looking forward to the longer evenings.
You could say we ‘sprung up’, but we don’t want to get confused with vegetables.
I led John, Jim, Cliff, Robin and Richard on a lovely run up to Walkers at Barton Mills/
We went via Dunmow, Finchingfield, Clare and Barrow, a fine and dry route.
Walkers was surprisingly quiet and we sat in the weak sun and ate and chatted like old friends, well certainly ‘OLD’.. ! We then went up the sublime A1101 through Fenland and left at B1101 to March and Chatteris, Huntingdon and Arrington on the 1198.
The café there was no longer open, The Bounders! So we had a last coffee and chat at a petrol station.
It was a great day with marvellous company. I do like the Fens too!
