Walk Report

Alton Circular, Saturday 10th July 2010
21 walkers, 22 miles - leader Lonica Vanclay
20 walkers met up with me at Alton railway station and we set off to Hawksley via the Hangars Way. The forecast was for very hot weather - so we walked at a steady pace and what with the breeze and shade we all survived the heat admirably. Lovely simple pub - Dave was impressed that the pub had 6 real ales - it was certainly quiet so we definitely contributed a fair proportion of their takings for lunch that day! Then via lanes and more open countryside back to Alton. 2 caught the 5.45pm train by a whisker - the rest of us were pleased we had time to enjoy an ice cream before boarding the next train half an hour later.
