Burston Hill, Grafham Water, RIngstead and The Chiltern Hills.

Burston Hill

We based ourselves here and, during that time, visited other places in the area. Di and David have 2 grandchildren, Bertie and Teddy and enjoy seeing them regularly.

Time to cool off.

Grafham Water

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.

Ringstead

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. This one had the most runners and was a closely fought contest.

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.


The Chiltern Hills

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.
