Professors in Fletching

Tuesday 13 November 2007 was a grey day weather-wise, as William lead 15 of us on a 9 miles "Nutley Circular" walk from Fletching.

The style of leadership was sparkling however, as Professor William Coleman managed to weave in snippets of information ranging from the recent and medieval history of the Fletching area, to its geology and ecology.



Daniel Hattrell served in the battle of Waterloo, as you can read if you click on the picture to the right.
Interesting enough, you might think.
However, this day was the last one that visitors to London arriving on Eurostar trains would be reminded of this great battle. The Eurostar terminal was moving from Waterloo to St Pancras.
We also stopped to remember Professor Jimmy Edwards, who is buried here, which caused a chuckle or two as we remembered his hilarious antics on TV.


The Harvey's ale went down well at lunchtime. And then we headed off through some further delightful countryside.










It was too dark to properly capture the colours remaining on these Larch trees and the beeches below. That took nothing away from the enjoyment of the day though.






It was another great walk.
Thanks William.
