A 100 Celebration Walk, Saturday 29th June 2013
18 walkers, 22 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
A wonderful walk to celebrate my 100th lead of an LDWA social walk. The weather was kind; warm but not hot and a light breeze, the scenery of the south downs was superb and the company of 18 was delightful with many different local groups represented; Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Essex and Herts, Wessex as well as our own London group. From Rowland's Castle we headed west on the Monarchs Way then switched to the Staunton Way which took us to the tiny 10th-century church at Idsworth in splendid isolation in the middle of a field for a celebration group photo. An early lunch at West Marden was followed by a series of stern hills and valleys via Stoughton, the Devil's Humps with fine views over the Solent to the Isle of Wight and Chichester cathedral, Kingley Vale and Walderton. Back on the Monarch's Way we headed west back to Rowland's Castle and a fine end with a view of Stansted Park to complete our 22-mile circuit.
