Walk Report

Around Liphook, Sunday 1st February 2009
18 walkers, 22 miles - leader Margaret Romanski
I was delighted that 18 people turned up for the walk despite the engineering works. The weather was mostly clear and cold and the route varied - part wooded and part hilly with some fantastic views. We headed east from Liphook to the Temple of the Winds then dropped to Fernhurst for a pre-ordered lunch at the Kings Arms. I rather foolishly announced to the group that there were no hills in the afternoon only to be faced with the steepest climb of the day straight after lunch. I think the nickname 'no hills Margaret' may stick for a while. In the afternoon we crossed Telegraph Hill and stopped at the viewpoint on Woolbeding Common to return to Liphook very soon after dark. All in all a great day.
