N=5 of us got the delayed train from Euston alas alack to find that the train at Bletchley had already gone so we got two cabs to the start of the walk.
2 set off ahead and were never seen again.
The walk was predominately a flood plain so I guess that this was the muddiest walk and no sign of flowers though loads of growth.

To our chagrin the lunch pub was closed due to a private function but we discovered a cafe

in the park only say 2 k further on and it was very good with a large selection of dishes at reasonable prices. Being goody-goodies we all had salads, excellent and large. It is a charity as well so great to support it. Treetops cafe is by the Rushmere Park car park if you need to find it in future and all the locals (hundreds of them) seem to know it.

We had 5 k to do after our lunch and one of us got the 16.34 whereas 2 of us missed it by moments and then the next train was cancelled and then the one after that was delayed and hey presto we waited near on an hour for our train back to Euston.

At least two of us will be using Resolver to claim back our fares

I have used it before for train and air fares and it has been great for both.

Good fun but hard work for a crassulent chap
