Gomshall to Dorking, 22 Oct 2017

22 Oct 2017 | Surrey Group

Adrian led 22 (plus 4 dogs) of us on a lovely walk through varied countryside. After after the winds and rain from storm Brian yesterday I had been expecting a cloudy day but it was not to be, the sun shone for most of the day. The walk took us through a number of familiar places but together they formed an ingenious new route.

12 Oct 2017 | Dorset Group

The start-point for the walk proved difficult to find for some of the participants, and at 10.50 there were still only three of us, However, we eventually amassed a party of ten, eager to ascend the heights of Hambledon Hill.
