Bronze Expedition 2
Bronze expedition 1

Our Duke of Edinburgh's Award Bronze participants had been waiting over a year for this! Their two-day expedition across the north Hampshire countryside was about to begin.
On one of the hottest days of the year so far, with the thermometer starting to rise towards thirty degrees, the intrepid group of six set off from Four Marks. Their objective — to visit five churches on a two-day, twenty-five kilometre walk, following paths and tracks.
They did extremely well, and enjoyed their overnight camp near Bramdean Common. Their second day had much less shade, and the group decided, very wisely, to stop for their breaks whenever they came to a copse or belt of trees. Having decided to start at eight in the morning, they managed to avoid the hottest part of the day, and finished near Exton, happy but tired, at 2 o'clock.
