There were seventeen on today’s eight mile walk. None were deterred by the prospect of closed roads and increased traffic from the Prudential Ride London cycle race. Our walk was too far south to be affected.
The leaders followed one of the shorter routes from Greensand Hills from the South (western walk) on the Fancy Free Walks website. We had a good day. It was warm and sunny and there were good views from the ridges.
We stopped for lunch in Ewhurst. Some ate in the pub; the rest ate picnics on the vilage green. Two of us sat on a bench by the bus stop. I remarked that as it was a Sunday there would be no buses to stop, obscure our view and gas us. Five minutes later a bus arrived and did just that.
