A mixture of woodland paths and field tracks. No hills worth the name. Chance of moisture underfoot.
  Here’s our new description for Sunday’s walk.

The ins and outs of Alice Holt Forest. 9 ¼ miles – special offer due to the quality of mud on our original route.

When we recced. the walk today – Tuesday 24th October, the going was a trifle squidgy, so we have diverted a few times, usually by a shorter route. Many of the paths were new to us, even though they are no more than 6 miles away, as the crow paddles from our home.

Although 11 miles, it is an easy walk and one we have done many times before. As usual we will be stopping at Stopham for lunch and if walkers feel like it, we can visit the Swan Inn at Fittleworth , after lunch. An alternative could be a coffee stop at the Cowdray Café on the way home! Look forward to seeing you there.
At the time of writing, the weather forecast for Sunday is pretty awful – if you plan to go to the start, please let Caroline know.
