Walk Report

Greensand Devil, Saturday 25th January 2020
11 walkers, 20 miles - leader Nigel Heys
Eleven people started from Milford Station, those who had arrived by train having had an extended journey owing to engineering work. They went from there to Witley a typical old Surrey village. They climbed from there to the Greensand Way which was followed for a time before starting the long climb to the Devil's Punchbowl. The Bowl was filled with mist. We then continued to Gibbet Hill (see group photo) still in the mist. It was downhill from there to lunch in Grayswood where most people used the Wheatsheaf.
After lunch we climbed up a field then under a fallen tree before reaching Chiddingfold. Then it was on to Witley Station (in Wormley!) rejoin the Greensand Way until Hambledon. Finally we crossed a golf course being rebuilt before taking the road back to Milford Station.
