There was mud and water on some of the paths on this morning’s six mile walk. Both were easy to avoid but they were a sign of the ending of summer. Leaves are coming off trees and bracken is turning brown. Roads by horse chestnut trees are covered in squashed conkers.
We (17) set off from the car park by Farley Heath Road on a bridleway that went west past Sandhurst Copse, turned south to join Dibdene Lane, turned east on a lane through Woodhill to Madgehole Lane, turned off this on a bridleway that took us to the Greensand Way and continued east to Winterfold Hill where we turned north. From here we walked on a bridleway past Winterfold Cottage to a footpath by the side of Ride Lane, turned left on a footpath near Farley Green, crossed Farley Heath and arrived back at the car park.
