  • Haslemere to Midhurst. 13/5/13.
    amib, Jun-13

    Having been deprived of bluebell sightings last week in Hertfordshire, it was time to return to trusty Surrey and West Sussex, where they were out in abundance!

    Like last week's walk, this wonderful 13 miler was well wooded, but wilder and with a lot more variety in the flora and fauna.

    It also provided the walker with his first cuckoo song in two years, a sad reflection of the bird's decline. There are some great views from Black Down, where the bird was heard.

    Lunch is had in the pretty village of Lurgashall, where the local hostelry overlooks the village green.

    Thereafter, it's on along a less wooded section; past a small lake; on through more woods and then into Cowdray Park, with its polo fields and Tudor ruins. Unusually, there's a bus ride finale for the return to Haslemere.

    Another corker of a walk in an area (South Downs National Park) that is rapidly becoming a favourite with this walker.
