Walking Matters

Godalming & Haslemere Ramblers

Hindhead circulars

The area by the Devil’s Punch Bowl has been transformed by the Hindhead tunnel. It has become a popular place to visit. Thirteen of us met at the NT cafe car park for a figure of eight walk (4.5 and 4 miles). When we set off the car park was fairly empty. Two hours later when we arrived back it was full and people were driving round looking for space to park. The mild sunny weather probably helped to bring out the crowds.

In the morning we walked north through Highcomb Copse, paused to look at the Roberston memorial, then turned south, passed the youth hostel and headed round the other side of the Punch Bowl. We returned to the car park along the site of the old A3.

Six remained for the afternoon walk and were joined by four others. The walk was to the east and south of the Punch Bowl. We went via Gibbet Hill, Hurthill Copse, Temple of the Four Winds, Royal School and back to the car park along the GSW.
