There was a clear blue sky for most of the morning. Twenty-seven met for the start of the 6½ mile walk in Crown Court car park (still free on Sundays) and set off south almost blinded by the sun. We headed to Holloway Hill, passed Godalming College and Ladywell Convent, turned right on Tuesley Lane and took the footpath that went behind Milford Hospital and the new houses to Milford station where we stopped for our coffee break. The leader offered round Malteser Tiffin and most had a piece.
We continued south on the footpath from the station and reached Crossways. The grounds of Witley & District Social Club looked neglected. A notice about a planning application for the property revealed the cause—the club had closed. We turned east along a paved bridleway to Enton Mill, walked under the railway line, turned left (NE) on a footpath across a field to reach Water Lane where we turned left and headed north through Enton Green, crossed Station Lane, entered the back of Tuesley fruit farm through a gate and followed the path a short distance (thus avoiding walking along the road) to emerge at the junction of Station Lane and Tuesley Lane.
By now clouds had appeared, as forecast. We continued along Tuesley Lane, passed the front of Milford Hospital, turned off on the footpath that went past the convent and retraced our steps to the car park in the centre of Godalming. We finished the walk in sunshine. Rain eventually arrived four hours later.
