Sun shines on Broadmayne, Dorset

Blessed with beautiful early spring weather, 24 members set off from Broadmayne on an 8-mile circular walk through gentle undulating countryside, passing watercress beds, gravel quarries, gorse laden heathland and carpets of celandines
Lunch was enjoyed at the Wise Man public house, just round the corner from Julian Fellowes' beautiful country home at West Stafford, while some enjoyed a picnic relaxing in the glorious sunshine.
In the afternoon, while passing the village of West Knighton, woodpeckers could be heard in the trees; then on our way back to Broadmayne, where all enjoyed a delicious cream tea, served by Andrew in his lovely house and garden. A perfect end to a perfect day!
