The leader of this morning’s 5½ mile walk told us that there might be mud. However, the only soft stuff we encountered were large cow pats on a section of the route that was obviously popular with cattle.
We met near the Withies pub in Compton, headed north on Polsted Lane, crossed over the NDW, walked up Sunnydown, turned east on the bridleway at the top (good views north towards Guildford Cathedral and London), turned south briefly to take a path on the other side of the ridge, continued west to a footpath that took us south downhill to the NDW, turned east, joined Stakescorner Road, headed south to a footpath that crossed the road, turned west, walked through Loseley Park on the footpath, reached Polsted Lane and returned to our starting point.
There were 18 on the walk. It was a mild day with pleasant conditions for walking.
