Although a relatively flat walk, the sunny weather gave us some superb views throughout. Lunch was taken under shade in the Elvetham Church grounds, after which we skirted the very impressive hotel - in the same style as the Royal Holloway University. Latterly we were very thankful for much dappled shade covering as we returned to Hartley Wintney.

Very pleasant afternoon for a walk. Although I use Moor Green Lakes CP for a banana beak on my regular monthly walks, I realised today that several people were unaware of its name. Car Park needs a permanent sign!

A good turn-out considering the closure of the B3349 and the uncertain weather. The varied walk was much appreciated and the Coach and Horses provided well priced food and friendly prompt service. Four did a shorter walk. Three had an accident and returned home.

A bracing walk on the Berkshire Downs including an historic pub, extensive views, the Ridgeway and the "Aldworth Giants". Everyone seemed to enjoy it, even the tight squeeze of 28 of us in "the Snug" at the Bell Inn.
