It was exceptionally hot during the day, so I decided at the last minute to do a sunset walk. Despite the short notice, we managed a group of 11 in total.
We set off a calculated one hour before sunset, across fields and along quiet country lanes, before ascending to the trig point at 54m above sea level. As sunset approached, we were in position on the watershed between the Gipping and Fynn valleys, between Henley and Witnesham. The scene was completed by a combine harvester going about it’s business.
As twilight descended, we followed the ancient track further and into the spooky woods. I was disappointed not to come across any wildlife (it was probably hiding from us). After negotiating Witnesham Thicks in the gloom, there only remained a rickety river crossing between us and safety. With torches aglow, I counted everyone over and then it was a final stroll through a field back to civilisation in Witnesham.
