Friday 20th July. Bradgate park walk to the central cafe and back
8 members met at the Newtown Linford car park. We set off along the road to Hall gates car park at the end of the road. On the way we saw deer either in the shade or in the grass by the stream as most of the park was parched because of the drought. There was also the occasional Buzzard and dragonfly. When we got to the Deer Barn cafe we decided to have a drink and cake and return. Clearly the heat was affecting us. The return journey was uneventful and by 12.00 we were back in the car park. The walk was 2.4 miles.
