Flickering Field Maple leaves amidst scarlet Spindle line the route through the Hairy Hedge, an elderly track that ends prematurely. I have a hunch that it used to slip into the Welsh Way before hitting Akeman Street, the Roman Road that linked St Albans (Verulamium) in Hertfordshire with nearby Cirencester (Corinium). These days the traffic is Muntjac, Rabbit, Pheasant, Badger, Fox, gardeners and their dogs.
