Elstead circular

There was a change of weather for yesterday morning’s five mile walk. It was cooler, more humid and there was intermittent drizzle. We wore waterproof jackets most of the time and became just as damp under them as we would have without them.

The start was the car park by Elstead Moat. Fifteen set off from there and headed south on a bridleway on Thursley Common. We joined the Greensand Way towards Thursley, continued on it through the churchyard to Smallbrook then branched north on a footpath and took the next footpath on the left and stopped for a break under the shelter of trees.

We resumed the walk and turned right at a road and then left (west) at the next bridleway. This curved north towards Houndown and joined the GSW. We took this and headed for the Lion’s Mouth where we turned east on a bridleway and continued on it before turning right and heading south on another bridleway along Woolfords Lane. In ¼ mile we we turned left (east) on a footpath that brought us out onto the road by the car park.

We finished the walk in plenty of time to get home to watch the men’s singles final at Wimbledon.
