The weather was ideal for walking as the Young Venturers set off from Brick Kiln Lane on the morning of 9th July. Their objective — to complete the 12km walk they had planned from Alton to Bradley, following footpaths and tracks, entirely on their own. A big ask for two boys and two girls in School Year 7 !

However, just six hours later, and having dealt with paths which had been planted over with barley (detour necessary!), they arrived safely, and very happily, at the finish. They were amazed at how much countryside there was, and how few people — they met only three in the whole day.

Once they've completed their "Log", telling the story of their adventure, they'll be awarded their well-earned certificates.
