Weather permitting we will have a picnic in a bluebell woods close to Tring station. After a short work of about one and a half miles, passing through the instagrammable village of Aldbury, we will enter the woods and find a quiet spot for a picnic. There are a few (mercifully) short stretches that are quite steep and can be muddy so sensible footwear is the order of the day as is a reasonable level of fitness.
The attached map shows the route into the woods but the exact spot will not be known until we find it! To the north of our likely spot is the Bridgewater Monument where toilets and a café can be found.
The date may change due to weather and other restrictions on movement and such.
Bring something to sit on and food for yourself and some to share.
The monument was built in 1832 in memory of the third Duke of Bridgewater who once lived in Ashridge house. As you walk around its York stone base, notice how the monument is dedicated to 'the father of inland navigation' because the duke became famous for building canals during the Industrial Revolution.
Climb to the top
During weekends from April to October we open up the monument and invite you to take the challenge of climbing all 172 steps to the top. As you scale the winding steps, take time to feel the rough cold blocks of granite and peek through the windows as you leave the ground behind.
