North Crawley (Sun. 05/01/14)

Posted on Updated on

We open 2014 with a walk to North Crawley!

Very easy and short trek to have a pint and socialize in The Cock Inn. I will take playing cards just in case, any other board game will be very welcome from my side (fingers crossed for a Carcassonne :P). The way back will be in the dark; Wear warm clothes and bring torches if you want.

Cranfield village, local flora and fish & chips (Sun. 13-10-2013)

Posted on Updated on

Haven’t had a chance to make it to the village yet? Well join us for this off road walk, taking the public bridleway around the airfield. Along the way we will be looking at some of the edible and interesting plants in the hedgerows. Once at the village you can buy the classic British special of fish & chips (or Indian or Chinese takeaway).

We’ve had lot of interest in doing another evening walk. So if you are free on Wednesday evening, why not join us for a ramble across the field to the village of North Crawley? We will be going to the Cock pub for some fish & chips.
