21st September 2014: A walk in three counties

Dermot led this twelve mile walk, which starts in Liphook, Hampshire; goes south to Woolbeding Common in Sussex, then returns over Black Down to Haslemere in Surrey.

Woolbeding CommonEight of us, including Woody, made an early start from Waterloo as we had a long day ahead of us. The first part of the walk is mostly through woods, and ends with a surprisingly steep ascent to the trig point on Woolbeding Common. We then headed east to the Duke of Cumberland pub at Henley. From there we went north, and by the final climb onto Black Down were very aware of the total of 2,000 feet of ascent for the day.
