Day Walks and Morning Walks are on alternate Wednesdays. We usually leave Midhurst car park, next to the causeway at 9.45am, for exercise and to enjoy the countryside. Day Walks are around 6 to 8 miles with a break for lunch, usually in a pub. Morning Walks are 4 to 5 miles with the opportunity for a pub lunch at the end of the walk.
Liz and Janet's walk will be around Trotton. Some road walking and possibly a bit of mud. About 4 miles, nice views, lunch at the Elsted Inn. Parking at Janet's house.
Den's walk will be from Hambledon village, parking by the wall, with lunch at The Bat and Ball. If you intend going straight to Hambledon, please contact Den for exact location.
Isabel will be leading a walk which will take in Older Hill and Titty Hill. There is a possible short cut for those not wanting to climb to the top. Lunch in the Royal Oak in Midhurst.
This is a 7 mile walk in total, walking 5 miles before lunch at The White Hart in Stopham, and 2 easy miles after lunch. It is muddy in places, especially round the bridge across the river, but is generally fairly easy walking with one or two inclines. Parking is not very easy, but you are welcome to follow Isabel from the North Street car park in Midhurst or instructions are as follows ---- Drive to Pulborough on the A283.
