Walks 2017

New commons to visit, 27 August 2017

This walk, led by Linda A, started from Marlow and quickly passed through Pullingshill Wood, Marlow Common, Moorend Common, Moor Common to Wheeler End Common, where we had our morning break in a circle of tree stumps used as seats by the local children's nursery. We then wended our way to West…

Goring Ups and Downs

Goring, Sunday 16th July In the past weeks Goring had had more than its fair share of excitement: the George Michael birthday celebrations with fans dancing in the streets; a visit from the Flying Scotsman; a BBC crew filming the Goring Gap's prolific entry for the Britain in Bloom competition; two…

The Krazy Kowleaze Kanter 2017

Article and photo by Helen Abbott This was another social Kanter from Cowleaze Wood along the same lines of one held last summer under the auspices of the group's 40th Anniversary celebrations. It was still billed as the Krazy Kowleaze Kanter on the handout, so perhaps the moniker has stuck! This…
