Mid-May 2021 update

The rhododendrons in the parkland between the House, and the football pitches are at their best at the moment,

The bluebells in Woodwalk are still very much in evidence.

Despite being swamped in places by brambles, they are still worth a visit.

There are also masses of buttercups, both in the field behind The Readings, and also the field adjoining North Hill.

The flooded picnic area by the Chess, which has been under water since February is at last being investigated by the Water Company.

Even though April was the driest on record, it followed the wettest February ever. The very high aquifer in the Chilterns has meant that the river has been in spate, and the high rainfall so far in May hasn’t helped.
