Den's walk left the Grange car park and headed through Midhurst Common before heading for Stedham. Full of pretty houses and cottages, a 2 bed terraced cottage in Lavendar Row will cost £375k - it makes St Cuthmans School (with 19 acres) look cheap at £3.2 million! After a drink stop in Stedham Village green we then went South through the Severals and past the old pits used by Midhurst Whites. We eventually reached Midhurst Town Square where we met up with a walker who is currently resting.

Stepping up to Kerry packer redundant polo fields
Careful spacing around Stedham signpost.
Interesting character returning to Stedham after a shopping trip.With a full battery a return trip to Petersfield is not difficult.

Janet led the walk from Dumpford through fields of maize towards Fair Oaks and towards Habin bridge
before eventually turning back to Dumpford - about 5 miles.
Careful, no jumping!
Isabel's walk started from a point between Lodsworth and Lickfold and we walked across fields, through woodlands and passed by two big ponds, where there were mills in the past. The first was called rather obviously called Mill Pond, and the second was nameless and by River Park Farm. Both were very quiet and peaceful spots, giving us good spots for a break.We sampled wonderful blackberries and saw large field mushrooms, although no one picked them, but the highlight was definitely the sighting of a hare!

It was about four and a half miles long and very easy walking
