Ten of us met at Waterloo including two possible new members. The weather was superb. We walked from Gomshall through Sheere where the statutory coffee break was taken. It turned out more of cream tea than elevenses. We then followed the North Downs Way meandering through the woods and up the steep sandy slopes to St Martha’s church. We stopped here for lunch and partook of the refreshments that the church had laid on, tea and biscuits in posh cups with saucers!
Apres lunch we walked up to the view point above Shalford and idled there for a while enjoying the scenery. Having diverted off the main route we had a steep climb back on to the NDW. We ambled along the river back into Guildford and had afternoon ‘drinks’ in the pub by the river. The walk was about 7/8 miles. The happy band of walkers included, Jonathan, Andrew, Caroline, Polly, Sara, Veronica, Jean, Hilary, Jens and me.
