Walk Report

Hurst Green to Lingfield, Saturday 7th July 2018
6 walkers, 18 miles - leader Peter Buchwald
Anticipation held us in thrall
That torrid day in the Weald
Hammer ponds in shady trees
Obscure groves in emerald seas

Lunch was held in a wire mill
We watched a water ski outside
Loved the cool of the limpid lake
And on our way before match start

We were coming home in silence
Through quietly deserted paths
A rousing cheer occasionally heard
From houses with all windows open
One of our group shouted results
She occasionally received by SMS.
