 Canal – river – lakes is the theme for tomorrow. The adverse weather has changed our plans yet again – a walk at Woburn Abbey grounds is now being postponed and instead we are going to go for a walk along the Grand Union Canal and river in Milton Keynes, pass the Caldecotte and Willen Lakes.

Caldecotte Lake during our visit last year – will we get some sunshine tomorrow? © Cranfield University Walks, 2011 – 2012.
