It was a cold sunny morning—ideal for our five mile walk on Hankley Common.
Twenty-two arrived for the start in the car park in the common on the Greensand Way NW of Truxford Farm. Some said that it was difficult to find. However, it’s easy to find if one looks at a map and uses the grid reference. It’s those who rely on sat navs and post codes who struggle. Post codes cover areas; grid refs pinpoint locations. Lack of the relevant map is not a problem now thanks to the web.
The first part of the walk was on the GSW to the Lion’s Mouth, along Kettlebury Ridge and back to the GSW by Houndown Bottom. The second was along the GSW, then north to Yagden Hill near the golf course and back to the car park on bridleways.
There are so many paths on Hankley Common that it’s easy to get lost. Fortunately, our leader knew his way round.
