Saturday 14 July: Woburn Abbey deer park POSTPONED
Update on Saturday morning 14 July: MESSAGE FROM Diane, our walk leader: I walked the route Wednesday morning and it was flooded in places because of all the rain we are having. I had two other routes in mind where we could have walked on hard surfaces, but this morning I have been out in the car to have a look and the river is up so high and over the banks in places that no way could we get through. Verdict: WALK POSTPONED until another date TBC.
