Food was a feature of today’s six mile circular walk. We met in the car park of the Manor Inn, Godalming, moved to the garden to sing several carols (a tradition of ours), set off along the towing path of the canal, and arrived back 2½ hours later for lunch in the Manor Inn.
There were forty on the walk so we divided into two groups. The groups walked in opposite directions but stopped together on the route for mince pies.
The weather was good; for the first time in days there was sunshine. It lasted all morning.
The route was from the garden of the Manor Inn, along the towing path to Stone Bridge, left on the footpath to join the route of the disused railway line, right along the towing path to Broadford Bridge, over the bridge, along the east side of the canal, along the Wey South Path, right over the recreation ground to the A281, across Gosden Common, past the sewage works, SW on a bridleway to Tannachie, right on the Fox Way to the towing path and back to the Manor Inn.
