16 September 2012: Guildford, along the Wey and the Watts Chapel

A sociable stroll around Guilford managed a crack o’ noon start as most of us opted for an early coffee in Guilford station whilst the party assembled. Much was happening hereabouts we spent some time on the route of the local marathon being overtaken many times by people moving not all that much faster than us. We had obviously missed the fastest group.

Annie, Neil, Veronica, Polly and Evelyn and some friends

We also missed the finish of the final stage of the Tour of Britain cycle race won predictably by Mark Cavendish shortly before we got back to Guildford.

The walk started along the banks of the river Arun and then wandered along leafy lanes and the occasional holloway before returning to Guildford along the river. We visited the Watts chapel and naturally the nearby cafe. Thanks to Polly for leading the walk.
