Walk Report

Woodlands, Downs and Sheep, Saturday 8th August 2020
6 walkers, 21.3 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
A southerly loop from Horsley station via the Sheepleas (the sheep of the walk title but none to be seen) up and over the North Downs and lots of forest as we were dealing with tropical weather conditions of heat and humidity. Morning break in Gomshall, lunch stop Peaslake and afternoon ice cream in Shere together with lots of up and down kept everyone happy. Even a little unofficial "off-piste" section, bashing through the ferns, was taken in their stride by all. The only problem was speedy bikers racing along the sandy tracks, otherwise few people around except for in the villages. Finished in time for the 5.20 train.
