Grafham Water anticlockwise

Friday 02 February, with Marta. Bright to begin with, but cloudy later. Dry with a cold wind.
About 9 miles.

Recent wet weather means it is reservoir season for our walks.
 We parked at the Visitor Centre near the cycle hire place, and walked around following the cycle track to Grafham village, past the church and along Church Lane. 

There are a few early daffodils and crocuses on the way.  We followed the track through Savages Spinney, pausing for a coffee just at the end of the woodland.
 The walk is very straightforward, and we continued to the smaller Visitor Centre near Perry. Beans on toast for lunch was fine.
From there we walked through some housing. The path is still clearly marked. It's about a mile alongside the road, and then another good mile across the dam and back to our parking place.
