A week of wild weather gave us a fresh and sunny day for our November Nature Walk!

We set of down the Flitch Way towards Hatfield Forest and made our way back past the airport balance pools. The Flitch Way runs along an old railway line.

What did we learn! We saw the winter crops in the fields and spotted Old Man’s Beard. We also compared the smoothness of Ash bark to that of Oak. Oak trees line the old railway line. For those new to the walk we looked at the Stane Street Halt.

We talked in detail about sewage, saw the processing plants and wondered at the clarity of the water in the old faithful Pincey Brook.
