A tricky path!

Finished!  Newton Valence Church

Venturing out in the Rain
The Good News: The Young Venturers, who had been prevented from tackling their first expedition due to the Covid-19 restrictions, were at last able to take up the challenge of a 12km walk through the local countryside. And the Bad News: the start of October saw the wettest weekend of the year!
Undaunted, the five young people set off from Alton, their task being to visit three churches. West Worldham was the first — after a diversion to avoid a very wet Water Lane! Next up was Selborne, once a small navigational error had been sorted out. And finally they successfully reached their destination at Newton Valence Church, in very good time, in very good spirits, but just a little on the damp side after enduring five hours of continuous rain.
Well done. It was a real achievement!
