An Unexpected Wander
Storms Ciara and Dennis had passed, but the ground was still very wet. Wasn't it a good thing that we had chosen to go to Weaver's Down, which is dry and sandy underfoot, for the Church Winter Wander walk?
But when we arrived, we found, much to everyone's surprise, that the area had been closed off by the Army 'for military training exercises'. So there had to be another cunning plan — and it needed to be made and implemented in minutes!
Fast-forward quarter-of-an-hour, and fourteen walkers were setting off from The Deer's Hut to enjoy a good walk on the Liphook Commons. At first it was rather muddy — to the concern of the eleven adults, but much to the delight of the three children with their Wellington boots! But then, drier paths and some more pleasant walking ensued.
The route then took us past Folly Pond and across the edge of Liphook Golf Course, before returning via the grounds of Foley Manor. And the rain stayed off — well, almost!
Then a short drive took us back to the Temple Inn in Liss Forest, where another six folk joined us for a welcome, if somewhat leisurely, lunch.
