Tuesday 1st May – sunny periods – Woodland Walk - Leith Tower/Place 2 ˝ miles ****

At last a blue sunny day! We did our exercises then loaded up the van and left home about 12. We went to Lidl and got a chicken and bits and pieces to do a meal at Rob’s tonight. The journey was really easy with no hold ups and we stopped at Leith Hill for a walk. The weather had clouded up a little but still a nice day. We had lots of Duke of Edinburgh groups passing us with their huge back packs and bed rolls!! When we got up to the tower (not too muddy) we read the notice board and saw that there was a walk down to Leith Place and through the rhododendron walk. We had done half the walk when we reached the notice board so followed the direction posts down the hill on very steep steps then on along a track passing several ponds and small streams. The bluebells are out in force and everywhere is a carpet of blue. Crossing parkland in front of the old building that is Leith Place, Mag said ‘all they need is the deer to make it a deer park’ and then spotted one – only the one though!! Later we saw another one with a fawn:) We then started the upward section of the walk back towards our car park and this is the start of the rhododendron walk. It was planted by the sister of Charles Darwin. The colours are always a bit garish but they were beautiful and set off by the bluebells it made it a wonderful sight. We completed the 2 ˝ mile loop and carried on to the van. Then it is just a 15-minute drive to Ewhurst and Rob at Sayers Croft. Hannah was tutoring in the early evening but we had a lovely time with Rob and Arlo and prepared the roast for when she got in. We are parked up in the car park so returned to go to bed – easy peasy!
