The Baker’s Trail

It’s really called the Baker Way and is named after a Mr Baker but the name seemed too suitable to miss.  A few of us walked it on Monday and were blessed with good weather. We were guided mainly by Natasha and Philip (and of course Jet & Theo) who had done it before though in the opposite direction.  It’s a lovely 13 mile flat trail through forests and fields with varied scenery, including ponds, rivers and canals.  A great time of year to do it too – so much blossom  – cherry, hawthorn; wild garlic as well as spring animals like lambs, ducklings and foals……b9067983-c7c6-4f14-a091-df4168456526.jpg

So maybe this is a walk we could do as a whole group of the bread circle later in the year or explore some other areas of Wirral, Cheshire or North Wales. I like the idea of regular walks ( or bike rides?) with interesting conversations and sharing thoughts and ideas…..Are others interested?
