Walk Report

Eighteen Miles from Haslemere, Saturday 5th November 2016
11 walkers, 18 miles - leader Nigel Heys
The eleven of us climbed mainly along the Greensand Way from Haslemere to Gibbet Hill through the spectacular autumn colours. After looking at the view we descended to Grayswood before stopping for a coffee break by an old road roller. From there walked along the lower slopes of Black Down before crossing farmland to lunch stop at the Half Moon in Northchapel. Suitably fortified we rose gently to Hillgrove and crossed several fields before climbing steeply up to the Temple of the Winds on top of Black Down for our afternoon break. After admiring the view it was almost all downhill to Haslemere Station.
