|Comments:||At the car park we all enjoyed the decorated cart, part of the Chipping, Village in Bloom Competition entry. A group of 25 set off through Chipping before taking to the fields near the village duck pond. The circular route took us via Lickhurst Farm, Dinkling Green Farm, and New Laund before climbing New Laund Hill overlooking the River Hodder. The return leg passed Fair Oak, Higher & Lower Greystonely, Knot Hill back to Chipping.|
