SPONSORED WALK 2019
Hornsey & Wood Green Group once again enjoyed a walk in the country to raise funds for Amnesty International. Some 13 Group members and supporters and a dog managed the 7-mile circular walk from Berkhamsted rail station in Hertfordshire on Sunday, 28th April.
The walk took us along hedge paths to cross Berkhamsted Common Woods, then past Ashridge Park golf course and Ashridge House - a vast Georgian Mansion built for the 7th Earl of Bridgewater as a Gothic extravaganza with battlements, turrets, and a 1000-foot wide frontage. From there it was back into the trees – the ancient beeches of Frithsden Beeches on the slopes of the Chilterns. Unfortunately, there was no pub or cafe halfway, but we did find a nice spot to stop and eat the snacks we had brought with us.
After the downpours of the day before, the weather turned out fine, and we raised £680 for AI.
