Boat Race (Oxford & Cambridge) route walk

Today we joined Reigate Ramblers on a walk along the route of the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. It starts at Putney and follows the River Thames up to Mortlake. The weather was overcast with a bitter cold wind. The sun started to come out about the time we finished the walk. Please see the photos at https://adobe.ly/2oiAgly

Milford Track, New Zealand

Anne Anderson (nee Baughen) kindly sent me a copy of the Listener dated 13 January 2018. It contains an article on Milford Track. Blanche Edith Baughan is normally credited with calling it ‘The finest walk in the world’. I’ve scanned the article and it can be found at www.baughen.co.uk/PDFs/Milford Track – Listener 13 Jan 2018.pdf .
Blanche was one of the first women to go to Royal Holloway College (London University). I do have a collection of most of her books.
