Walking Matters

Godalming & Haslemere Ramblers

Farnham figure of 8

There were 33 on the morning five mile walk and 23 on the afternoon three mile section. Rain started before we reached the start at Farnham golf club public car park. As we set off it stopped. Apart from a heavy shower which lasted for ten minutes while we sat in the café by the car park eating lunch, there was no more rain.

From the car park we headed SW and joined the St Swithun’s Way. At Park Farm we stopped to look at a barn full of sheep and lambs. One ewe gave birth to twins before our eyes. A man wearing a long red glove assisted by pulling them out. The ewe stood up immediately afterwards and started to lick them. We carried on along SSW and turned left on a lane that took us to Dippenhall. Here we turned left at a fork in the road and shortly after joined a footpath that led east across fields to a minor road. We crossed the road, headed NW on a footpath, turned right at a junction, rejoined SSW and made our way back to the car park.

After lunch we walked round Farnham Park.
