The Seasonal Walk proved to be a great success. 10 people and 2 dogs set off from a car park near Liss Forest in bright sunshine on the morning of 7th March. We initially followed the route of the railway, bounded by fields and wetland now designated as nature reserves, and continued by paths and tracks on a circular route through woodland and heartland, with only a short stretch of quiet country road, back to our starting point.

Seven of the group then travelled by car to the Deer's Hut just outside Liphook where we were joined by two others and enjoyed a good lunch. The dogs came, too, but they had to make do with a biscuit and a rest under the table.

Thanks to David Allan for organising and providing lots of information about the area and, in particular, about its railway history. We look forward to the next outing!

The photos show the group ( minus photographer) at the start and en route on Weavers Down.
