Yesterday we enjoyed a walk through Ashridge Estate to Ivanhoe Beacon and back again. The day was lovely, although there was quite a bitter nip to the air. I had a t shirt, two jumpers and a gillet on as well as my warm woolly hat! But nevertheless it was an enjoyable 6 mile walk.
The valley of Incombe Hole
Windmill in the distance
The chalk lion on the hill that can be seen from the approach to the beacon.
Hawk soaring through the air.
The beacon marker ...some how I thought it would be a bit more impressive than this.
Walking back through the woods of Ashridge Estate you can see the bluebells almost in bloom - we must go back next week as they will look glorious!
