Walk Report

Awayday to Wiltshire, Saturday 9th July 2016
4 walkers, 22 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
Salisbury start at 09.45; Romsey finish at 18.00
Route: Avon Valley Path to Trafalgar Park, climb to Pepperbox Hill for picnic lunch, lovely ridge walk along Dean Hill, descent to join Test Way. Delightful Wiltshire/Hampshire countryside with rolling hills, long views with Salisbury Cathedral spire seen for many miles, overgrown vegetation to bash through, a mixture of sunshine and strong breeze, muddy woods near the end. The group lacked quantity but had quality, the only issue was decking who should be back marker! Overall a great awayday.
