Walk Report

A Hilly Guildford Circular, Sunday 4th August 2013
18 walkers, 25 miles - leader Don Bolton
16 of us set off from Guildford station for a very long and hilly walk. Took a few photos at St Martyrs Church and then on to Newlands Corner to see the competitors on the Bike 100 ride. With so many people there it was impossible to get a drink and a big queue to use the toilets. One more, Margaret, joined us to make 17. Then down thru Albury and on to Brook where 3 lost Norwegians joined us making 20. These 3 left us in Peaslake but one more, Don Newman, joined making 18. Lunch in a severely under-staffed pub in Holmbury St Mary where Margaret left us, then up Holmbury Hill and some more photos. Along the GSW to Pitch Hill and more Photos. Then along the GSW where we lost Don Newman at Jelleys Hollow leaving only the original 16 walkers. Made it back to Guildford for the 19.05 train to London. The walk was probably 25 miles done with good companions and in good weather. A great day out in the Surrey Hills.
