T=1.6
At Liphook 6 alighted from the train and 2 caught up at lunch having done a sort of Haslemere circular, so =8 in total. The day was =sunny, bright and breezy, the fresh cool autumn wind rustling the trees. The colour was impressive with mainly yellows and green and the paths were like thick cushions with all the leaf fall. We got lost in the woods a few times, splitting up and rejoining again. A good lunch was enjoyed in the Red Lion, the service was incredibly quick and the stew was hearty. One decided to press on without lunch as he said he was in training for a trip to Mt Kilimanjaro (!). We had some rain as we decended into Haslemere but not much. The group split between Darnleys and the White Heart and we all got the 17:17 train back to town a lovely day out.
8 sunny bright and breezy

Next Week: Book 2 Walk 1 - Wendover Circular; 20.2 km; 7/10 rating.
T=1.6
I am doing the walk Tomorrow. So I will see you there.
9 on this walk. Was it cloudy or sunny or rainy? All three at times. Having done this walk previously in its old book one slot of February, it was a revelation to see it "with its clothes on", so to speak lush foliage and DRY paths (in winter it is a mudbath). I barely recognised it.

One advantage of midweek walks is that lunch pubs that are busy at the weekend are only half full. Someone forgot to tell the Red Lion this, but they kindly shoehorned four of us into an inside table, while three of us took advantage of a nice period of sunny weather to eat outside. Food was a while coming we were warned but with portions enough to sink a battleship.

A pleasant afternoon walk to Haslemere and tea at Darnleys with its mouth watering cakes. It now seems to be run by Eastern Europeans not that there is anything wrong with that: they are very welcome but otherwise is unchanged. In keeping with midweek walk tradition we then got a train (the 4.37?) timed to get us back to Waterloo just at the peak of the rush hour.
