A big group of us joined Helen on this eleven mile walk in the Hampshire countryside, mostly following the Hangers Way — the Hangers being steep but densely wooded hills. After a long train journey fron Waterloo, we set out north west from Petersfield, through the village of Steep, then up Leg of Mutton Hill — which must give the village its name.
Some of us had thought the hill was named after a pub at the top, but this was not to be and we had to walk on another couple of miles to Hawksley for lunch on the village green then a stop at the very crowded pub.
We had another six miles to go after lunch, as we wound our way through the Hangers. We finally said goodbye to the Hangers Way, going cross-country and down hill to Liss and the train back to London.
