Compton Day/Morning(!) Walk 1st March 2017

This day walk was hampered by a very poor weather forecast for the afternoon and we took measures to finish at lunchtime if the need arose. Jennifer led us from Compton up and over the spur of Compton Down, on past the wonderful church of St Hubert at Idsworth, under the main London to Portsmouth railway line and then  up the edge of Chalton Down to the Red Lion at Chalton for lunch. With the staff photographer on sick leave, June took over and produced some great shots at our coffee stop. The muddy going, the hilly bits and a leisurely lunch all combined to cancel the return walk and we called it a day after 4.3/4 miles.
