Weekend Walking Groups

It’s on Saturdays and Sundays that groups from Liphook and District Ramblers tackle their longer walks. The weekend of November 6th -7th is fairly typical: On Saturday there is a walk, of 7.75 miles, around the Hampshire villages of Liss and Sheet, while the Sunday group will tackle some steep climbs, on a 12-mile walk around Waggoners Wells and the Devil’s Punch Bowl.

It will be interesting to see the latter, a well-known Surrey beauty spot, just a short time before it is by-passed by the Hindhead Tunnel and to visit the area again, next year, to see the changes.

On a summer weekend, the group sometimes tackles a real long-distance walk, like the annual ‘Lipchis Way‘, a 25-mile walk from Liphook to Chichester. A bit too long for me, that one! I did walk a short section of the route on a walk near Goodwood, though, and that was through some of the most glorious South Downs scenery!

    How beautiful the heather looks on Hindhead Common. Frensham Common is another very good place for heather and both commons are home to the rare sand lizard.
