On a glorious sunny Autumn morning, 9 walkers led by Gary & Alan set off from Farley on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border. Walking at a leisurely pace through open fields before entering Beechy Down Copse then on to the site of the remains of Clarendon Palace. The medieval ruins were once a royal palace during the Middle Ages but all that is visible now above ground level is one end wall of the great Hall. Taking our lunch break there, we were joined by a group of inquisitive resident Llamas.
Our return journey took us through Carverel Copse on to Pitton village and then the only one step ascent up to Church Copse, Houndwood before descending back to Farley, stopping to look inside All Saints Church, designed and built by Sir Christopher Wren and Stephen Fox together with the almshouses opposite.
