Midhurst Morning Walk 21st February 2018

Jean's Morning Walk started from The Grange car park and found a few old and new paths over Midhurst Commom before crosssing over the road to the fields above Woolbeding House and Estate. Now owned by the National Trust, Woolbeding House sits in  “the prettiest river and nicest valley in England” - as described by Disraeli. We followed the route downstream to the Millbridge before heading for the Causeway (the bridge was home to hundreds of spawning frogs) and a climb up to St Ann's Hill, once probably the site of an iron-age fort. The recent stonework on the hill was placed on the site of a 12th century building which had been abandoned in the 15th century.  Lunch was in The Royal Oak and the walk was about 5 miles.
