Saturday 24th longer walk: Haslemere circular

A reprise of this beautiful walk, mostly through National Trust mixed wood & heathland. After lunch we share a steep path going up through a wood with a stream going down which can be exciting after rain, but we are rewarded by lovely views at the top. Meet Waterloo stn. Buy OPDR to Haslemere. Train dep. 9.30, arr. 10.20. Distance 8.7 miles. ??133. Lunch Red Lion at Fernhurst – pricey of course, it’s Surrey, but there’s a massive green for sandwich eaters. It’s worth leaving a bit of space for tea at Darnleys in Haslemere at the end. Leader Harriet.
