Conkers!
« on: September 18, 2016, 07:07:20 am »
Does anyone know the location of a Horse Chestnut tree anywhere in the village where we could get some conkers from? We'd like to introduce the youth club members how to play conkers......


Thanks in advance for any help!

Gobions, if you enter from the top of Mymms Drive when you meet the main path from the field there is a big horse chestnut

By the alley on Westland/Oakland's (but not ready to fall yet). They're just starting to fall at Goblins

Walk 1 the North Mymms Loop is good for conkers. Park near the church, stick a rucksack on your back and it will be full by the time you have finished the walk. Another is Walk 4: The Epping Green Circular. In fact, most of the 58 local rambles will probably pass under some Horse Chestnut trees. :)
