Cirencester Ramblers

April 17th, Fritillary Walk at Cricklade

On a bright and fresh spring day 33 ramblers went on a circular 5 mile walk from Cricklade. The group walked up the old railway track to Cerney Wick.  After stopping for a coffee at the old lock we returned back along the canal to Latton Basin.  The intention had been to walk through North Meadow to see the fritillaries but it was closed as parts of the meadow was still flooded and the flowers only just emerging. Instead we crossed to the other side of the Thames and returned to Cricklade along the Thames Path.
