Walk Report

Circular South of Haslemere, Saturday 26th January 2019
19 walkers, 20 miles – leader Nigel Heys
Nineteen people left Haslemere Station before 9am and headed up to Marley Common to join the Serpent Trail which was followed intermittently for much of the day. We soon switched to the Sussex Border Path and then crossed to the New Lipchis Way before climbing to Woolbeding Common for a well-deserved coffee break at the viewpoint (see pictures). Then it was back to the Serpent Trail through Henley and Bexleyhill before stopping on Bexleyhill Common for a picnic lunch sitting on logs. We then cut across country for refreshments at the Noah's Ark in Lurgashall. Next we passed close to Northchapel before heading towards Black Down passing an amazing display of snowdrops in Wateredge Copse. We rejoined the Serpent Trail to return to Haslemere, where some found the tea shops more attractive than catching the train back to London.
