Walk Report

Petersfield Circular, Sunday 19th April 2015
10 walkers, 22 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
A group of 10 enjoyed a wonderful 22 mile walk in the Hampshire hills on an ideal spring day, cold but lots of sunshine. West of Petersfield took us to the hill above East Meon and then south along the ridge to HMS Mercury and a section on the South Downs Way and Monarchs Way. Picnic lunch in the hills and then a glorious section round Old Winchester Hill before a descent to the fleshpots of a countryside experience, which meant loads of cars and people looking for entertainment and food. Our entertainment was finding hidden valleys, walking up lots of hills, climbing gates, running across the A3 and a speedy finish to catch our train. A great day out.
