25th June – Flower Photography – Thaxted

The speaker we had recently, Barry Kaufmann-Wright has invited us over to see his meadow and take photos of the various orchids.
He is incredibly knowledgeable about wildlife and flowers and can give a brief intro on what to see, when we arrive and before we take our photos. It should be a good trip out.
Could anyone wishing to go please contact Sue Sanders so she can get some idea of numbers.

Directions to meet Barry Kaufmann Wright

From Saffron Walden head out along the B184 towards Thaxted.
There is a sign on the left saying Tye Green but just continue along Thaxted Road and go through Howlett End. The next turn (a track) on the left goes to Elms Farm, but stay on the Thaxted Road approx one hundred yard until on the right you will see a couple of buildings. ‘Pandemonium’ is where Barry lives but we continue just a little further until you see a sign saying ‘Walk and Talk’. That is where Barry is meeting us.

We are all invited back for a cuppa after our foray.

(However, his postcode is CB10 2XP which only directs you to Elms Farm and not his place.)

I have arranged for us to meet him at 7.45pm

It is probably best if you can car share. If anyone wishes to go with Sue from Barkway,She has room for two passengers.
Please conract Sue directly
