Visit to an Iron Age Fort, Saturday 17th March 2012
14 walkers, 23 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
Danebury Hill is a vast area to the south west of Andover with much to explore on top or just admire the fine views. Our group of 14 had set off on a rather dreary damp morning but the weather soon brightened and we had a very good day. Via some pleasant Hampshire villages and a long valley bottom we maintained a strong pace and had time to enjoy the area. Down to the lovely small town of Stockbridge for lunch with lots of variety much enjoyed by all. The afternoon was the Test Way to Chilboton Cow Common and through Harewood Forest; a very fast pace, some lovely scenes and pleasant companions for our 23 miles.
