Woolavington Down Morning Walk 4th September 2019

Jennifer aided by Pauline led the walk which started by admiring the view overlooking Fryan’s Hanger at Duncton Down, climbing higher to go along the edge of Woolavington Down. After leaving the open spaces and fields now fully harvested, the route crossed the South Downs Way and went into woodland, where we stopped for refreshment before doubling back on another path to admire more stunning views.  We reached Crown Tegleaze, once the highest point on the Southdowns Way until someone added Hampshire, with Butser Hill being a mere 15 metres higher. The weather for this walk was ideal with sunshine and a light breeze, although less than five miles with a little detour and lots of stops to look at views, working out what and where it was that we were marvelling at, made us a little late for the delightful lunch provided by the Badgers at Coultershaw Bridge. Friends unable to walk that day were content (we think) to wait for the intrepid and happy walkers.
