|Wrapping up after lunch at Caddington|
Approaching Berko, some fancied a few more hills and took to Featherbed Lane, doubled back under the A41 and climbed up the other side to Little Heath before finally dropping down to the valley. That was a good excuse for a Wetherspoons’ breakfast for some as we were all reunited in The Crown.
While a few opted for a slightly easier route to lunch, the main group wanted (or were served even if they didn’t) even more hills. We climbed up to Potten End, down to Nettleden, up to Great Gaddesden, down to the Gade Valley, up to Gaddesden Row, down to Markyate (where we all met up again by chance), and finally up to Caddington.
The pub was crowded (as all good pubs should be), but we were well looked after and fitted in somehow, then it was quite a short ride back to St Albans in the light after a good day out.
