It was another hot sunny day. For once walking in the shade was a relief.
There were 20 on this morning’s five mile walk. We met in the car park at Peaslake, walked to the pub and took the footpath to the west of it. At the top of the hill we turned NE, passed Hazel Hall, turned left on a lane, continued north on a footpath to Jesses Lane, turned right on the lane and then turned left on a bridleway that crossed Lawbrook Lane and reached Hound House Road near Cotterells Farm. We turned left on the road, turned right on a footpath, joined a byway (Ponds Lane), turned left and then turned left on a footpath that passed Dilton Farm. Continuing on the footpath we passed Knowle Farm and reached Hound House Road again. Here we turned right and then took a footpath on the left. We followed this passing Kiln Platt Cottage and Bentley Copse and reached a bridleway where we turned left, passed Peaslake House, crossed the lane and took a path to the car park.
The walk was memorable for the heat and the views.
