15th September. Short walk around Bradgate Park. 3 miles

10 of us met on a damp day for Cynthia and Sandra's walk around Bradgate Park. As we were a relatively fit bunch we decided to take the trail up to Old John. When we got there they were preparing some sort of reception but unfortunately not for us. We then walked down to the cafe in the park where we had tea and cake. Cleverly Cynthia had arranged for the drizzle to stop before we set off and the heavy downpoor came while we had tea. We then walked along the road back to the car park. It turned out to be a bit further than 3 miles but everyone coped well.
