Godalming & Haslemere Ramblers

Hindhead circulars

The walk went well. There was no rain and paths were less wet than last week; some on open south-facing slopes were dry. We started the day in mist and ended in sunshine. Nineteen arrived for the morning 4½ mile walk; ten remained for the afternoon four mile walk.

The NT created three self-guided trails at the Devils Punch Bowl and Handheld Common after the Hindhead tunnel was opened. A new one appeared at the end of September marked by white circular plaques with purple text, ROAM 639. This was set up in memory of a local man who died at the age of twenty of muscular dystrophy. 639 is the number of skeletal muscles in the human body. 6.39 is the distance in miles of the route.
