Walk Report

Petersfield to Rowlands Castle, Sunday 25th October 2009
11 walkers and a dog, 18 miles - leader Peter Buchwald

It was a fine autumn day as I switched on my GPS
And set off through sunny streets of Petersfield
Chatting and laughing with my ten companions
Past a large supermarket and down a lane.

We crossed grassy fields in bright cool sunlight
Passed through a village of quaint bungalows
Into the open country through pretty Buriton
Up and down hills along the South Downs Way.

We trod carefully down slippery chalk paths
Rapidly neared our pub which we found closed!
We walked another hour and half through woods
Until we came to Stoughton where we ate and drank.

We talked about King Charles the Second and his
Flight to France along the Monarch's Way
We walked the avenue away from Stansted House
And finished in a pub with near an hour to spare.
