Peter Wallace: September 2015
A happy band of 10 walkers and one dog set off from Tilford Green on 17th September ready for a good chat and enough exercise to work up a good appetite. We made our way from Tilford on paths and country lanes passing through Bourne Woods, crossing a fast flowing River Wey (by bridge!) and encountering pigs, large and small, separated from us by a wire fence. The little stripey ones caused the dog great excitement as he took them for a strange kind of dog never before seen. The last leg of our journey took us along a beautiful open stretch of the river then along a fenced path, emerging onto Tilford Green to complete our circuit just before dark. A very enjoyable walk was 'rounded off' with an excellent meal and more chat in the Barley Mow, and a good time was had by all. Thanks to David Allan for planning the route and booking the tables. And when's the next walk to be?
