Walk Report

The Clandon Stomp, Saturday 22nd August 2020
6 walkers, 23.1 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
The walk title is a reference to a challenge walk "The Stonehenge Stomp" suggesting a tough speedy walk around some lovely countryside. The walk from Clandon station had all these ingredients with great views as we climbed up to cross the North Downs at West Hangar and drop down into Shere followed by an ancient avenue of trees across Albury Park. Farley Green and Farley Heath took us along sandy tracks to lunch stop on Shamley Green. Timing was rather unfortunate as we experienced a short sharp shower but soon the sun came back out and we dried off quickly as we headed west to meet the Downs Link. The old railway line section gave us an opportunity to build up the miles and then back into the hills for the climb up to the edge of St. Martha's Hill. Sections of the North Downs Way, Pilgrims Way and Clandon Downs lead us at a cracking pace to the station just as the train was coming in. A Stomping finish.
