Alton Webteam: June 2018
It was pleasant and warm as 17 of us set out from Selborne for an evening walk. Noar Hill had its usual wonderful assortment of wild orchids and other wild flowers, and the grassy tracks on Selborne Common were enjoyed by all. At 4.2 miles and with 560ft of uphill it was perhaps not really a "stroll", but the conversation, the countryside and the views made up for that. When we reached Selborne, some had to head off to Alton, but more joined us, and so 20 people enjoyed food and fellowship in the Inn before a leisurely departure for home.
The next walk — an Autumn Amble — is on 3rd October at 10am.
