Thirty arrived for this morning’s five mile walk. Given the weather forecast this was a surprising number. However, the added attraction (apart from the leader) was the planned stop half way round in a popular tea room. The leader, having contacted Watts Gallery Tea Shop in advance, phoned through with the number before we set off. When we arrived there was room for all of us inside, which was fortunate because it was raining and, in spite of the size of the group, service was prompt.
We started near Artington P&R, crossed the main road, took the footpath by the south side of Mount Browne and continued west to Compton and Watts Gallery. Our return route was via the North Downs Way to the River Wey and south along the towing path to Artington.
