Walking Matters

Godalming & Haslemere Ramblers

Compton, Binscombe, Loseley Park

Overnight rain made little difference to paths on this morning’s 5½ mile walk. They were still dry and dusty.

Twenty-three arrived at the start in Compton near Watts Gallery. We headed south across Eastbury Park to Binscombe, passed the site of the Quaker burial ground and took a footpath to the playing field by New Pond Road (B3000). Here the Farncombe Youth Football Club had several matches in progress. As our footpath went across one of the pitches we were unable to use it so our leader had to find another route. She spoke to one of the organisers of the tournament and we were escorted round the perimeter of the ground past cheering spectators to the stile by the road.

We crossed the road, walked through Loseley Park past Grove Cottage to Stakescorner Road, turned left, walked along the road to  Littleton, turned left on a footpath across Loseley Park and continued west back to Watts Gallery.
