Guildford Circular

Jane Rosoux writes

"I attach photographs taken on Sunday's 10.5 mile circular walk from Guildford led by Barbara Luke from which to make a selection for the Rambling On blog. As you see the snow had largely disappeared and what was left was fairly slushy and not as slippery as Barbara had feared.

"But there was still enough snow to be fairly scenic and the weather was quite good - cold and dry with sunny intervals. The trains were running to a special timetable in order to ensure that they were in the correct places for Monday morning but three of us caught the 09.30 (the one specified in the programme) and enjoyed a smooth, trouble-free journey.

"Those who decided not to join us missed an enjoyable walk over varied and attractive terrain with a lunch stop at Chilworth, where we warmed up at the hospitable Percy Arms. There were four trains an hour back to London and after looking at the market stalls on the bridge near the station we caught a fast train at 16.05."
