Yesterday’s walk started from the green in Chiddingfold. We (thirteen of us) took a footpath past the church, crossed The Downs to reach a minor road and paused to admire the kissing gate installed by our group. This replaced a wobbly stile that used to throw people into the road.
Turning right on the road we walked along it to a footpath that passed near Combe Court Farm and crossed a railway line to a bridleway where we turned right. We walked through Hopkins Reeds (horribly muddy in winter) and along the side of Ten Acre Wood past the Donkey Sanctuary (not a donkey to be seen) to Sandhills.
We reached a road and turned right on this and joined the Greensand Way to Witley station where we turned right (south) on a footpath, crossed a road to continue on a footpath past Noddings Farm and back to Chiddingfold. At the road (Woodside Road) we turned left and then right on Coxcombe Lane which took us to the village green.
It was a good walk. Paths were dry and there was plenty of chat. Someone asked me if I knew Genesis. She meant the rock group, not the book in the Bible. In their early years, the group used to practise in Chiddingfold village hall. She and her friends would sit outside and listen.
