Whempstead Green is a couple of miles down the road from Burn’s Green (see a previous post), though we took a circuitous route that started off down a hollow way behind the pub at Burn’s Green and then carried on across open fields with poppies in their few days of perfection. (Open the hyperlinked map and the Whempstead Green is where Whempstead Road meets Mill Lane.)
I couldn’t find a photo at the green itself although a converted chapel – one of only four or five houses there – is attractive enough. But the walk had taken us through Chapel Farm on the far side of the green with some interesting shapes, structures, and light effects in the yard.
The only local we came across was friendly enough. Luckily the Jack Russell was on a lead.
