►Lavender in Hitchin

On 15th July a lively group of 17 Outings members, including several newcomers, descended on the lavender farm just outside Hitchin, Hertfordshire (very quick on the train!). The entry fee includes a paper bag and loan of scissors to cut your own, and after an hour or so some bags were bulging.

There are lovely views across the surrounding countryside from the top of the fields and we snipped away, accompanied by zillions of bees, before making for the cafe for lunch. A lovely spot to visit and enjoy the fragrant fields and nice to take it home as that doesn’t happen at the Mayfield Lavender Farm, Banstead.
