Bubble walks on 21st April 2021

Isabel led a lovely walk of four and half miles, starting from Cowdray Farm shop, with a steady climb uphill past Loves farm to Whitter’s Copse, the wild flowers and rape seed fields are just coming into bloom to enhance some stunning views. After a coffee stop it was a gradual downhill back into Easebourne.

A beautiful day for a ramble.



Den led the larger than usual group for a ramble over Midhurst common via the newly refurbished skatepark, pausing on Sunset hill before crossing the A272. Once over the river we climbed up the the old Polo grounds before walking through the village and down to Stedham Mill and a welcome drinks break. The route then went along the river Rother to Woolbeding Bridge before finding the A272 once again and dropping down back to The Grange car park. We had a guest walker Wendy with us who is new to Midhurst. The walk was about 5 miles.
