1. South-East. Burston hill, Grafham Water, Ringstead and The Chiltern Hills.
We based ourselves here and, during that time, visited other places in the area. Di and David have 2 grandchildren currently, Bertie and Teddy and enjoy seeing them regularly. Edit Nov 2020 - they now have 4 grandchildren!

Tandy likes to visit us in the van.
We stayed at a small campsite near Grafham Water on a couple of occasions. The first time we had warm sunny weather but hadn't taken our bikes so walked across fields and the lake to the village of Perry on the southern shore of the lake. The second time we did take the bikes. It was much colder but one morning we did cycle around the lake.
Our nephew James invited us to stay with them over the Easter weekend and go to their local Point-to-Point. We had fantastic weather - 3 days of sunshine over a bank holiday weekend!
Sadly, due to the hot weather probably, there were not many runners in any of the races.
On Easter Sunday we all went for a walk at Stanwick Lakes, a few miles south of Ringstead.

A lovely end to the day - BBQ with the family.
We know the northern part of The Chilterns quite well but this time went a bit further south. The Chiltern Hills is a chalk escarpment with rolling hills and valleys with some lovely old villages, several are used in films and TV series. We were lucky with the weather and were able to have a couple of good walks through the countryside.
We saw a couple of herds of deer on our walks.
Beech woods are a feature of The Chilterns.
