Frensham Common

Frensham Common

We set off in sunshine. Clouds soon gathered but by the time the seventeen of us arrived back two hours later, rain had yet to fall. The area, being sandy, meant that in spite of recent heavy rain there were no muddy footpaths, quite a contrast to some we encountered yesterday.

The walk started at the Visitor Centre at Frensham Great Pond. We went north on a bridleway, crossed the A287, walked up the ridge of Frensham Common to the NW side of Frensham Little Pond then headed SE round the east side. We crossed a ford and continued through Frensham Country Park towards the Great Pond before turning north on a footpath that took us past the Robertson memorial and back to the visitor centre via the north side of the Great Pond.

There are nine of the memorials. The others are: Netley Park near Gomshall, Toys Hill in Kent, Hydons Ball, the Devils Punch Bowl Hindhead, Birling Gap, Dunstable Downs, Sharpenhoe Clappers in Bedfordshire and Sutton House in London.
