Walk Report

Into Hampshire, Saturday 6th January 2018
16 walkers, 19 miles - leader Nigel Heys
Sixteen people braved the cold to start the walk from Farnham Station. They walked through the park by the River Wey and through the old part of the market town before climbing onto the downs and crossing into Hampshire. The undulating route was through fields and woods to the lunch stop at the Hen & Chicken at Upper Froyle. Suitably fortified the return route was through Upper Froyle with religious statues in niches on the house walls and past a wedding at Froyle Park. The group then passed Montgomery of Alamein's home at Isington Mill before climbing the downs and dropping down again to Bentley Station. The route from there to the end at Farnham Station was mainly along the railway with alpacas and horses in the fields. Despite the mud the dry weather made it an enjoyable walk.
