The weather was cool and damp at the start of this morning’s five mile walk. Light drizzle ceased just before we set off. We needed sweaters and jackets to stay warm. A localised storm two nights earlier had left the route partially blocked in places. Large branches of three trees had split from their trunks and fallen across the paths. Fortunately, we were able to skirt round them without much difficulty.
There were seventeen on the walk which started from the car park near the Fox and Pelican in Grayshott. We set off south on a bridleway that took us to a byway that led to Waggoners Wells. Here we followed a footpath by the south side of the lakes before crossing to the north side and continuing on a bridleway that took us round the edge of Ludshott Common. We left the common on the north side (having passed the car park), crossed the B3002, turned down Hammer Lane, branched right on a byway and turned right on a footpath that headed towards Grayshott. We continued east, passed Grayshott Pottery and returned to the car park.
Talk had been of ticks and deer flies—insects to avoid.
