Saturday 31st March
13.6 miles, Circular Moderate 10:30 Matthew Fowler GU8 6NS
Meeting point: The Devil's Punchbowl car park
For this Easter we will be heading down alongside the Hindhead Common towards Hankley Common where they filmed the Skyfall movie and then head through the Golf Course to the Duke of Cambridge pub for a drink. Afterwards we will cross the road to the National Trust Frensham Little Pond to have lunch then journey down to the Devil's Jumps before heading back to where we started by crossing Pitch Place to the Punchbowl.
Since it will be Easter, I will bring some treats along for after the walk. Make sure you bring packed lunches, good boots and gators along with waterproofs just to be safe.
Parking: The National Trust car park where we are starting charges £6.00 for 5 hours so bring as much change as possible for an all day ticket.
If you are a National Trust member, display your badge for free parking.
If all else fails, there is free parking along Tower Road just down the A333 nearby, which is a long wide road with no double yellow lines (let us know if you are parking here so we can give you time to walk up to the Puncbowl).
Easy Walks are for anyone who does not have a mobility difficulty, a specific health problem or is seriously unfit. Suitable for pushchairs if they can be lifted over occasional obstructions. Comfortable shoes or trainers can be worn.
Leisurely Walks are for reasonably fit people with at least a little country walking experience. May include unsurfaced rural paths.
Moderate Walks are for people with country walking experience and a good level of fitness. May include some steep paths and open country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are highly recommended.
Strenuous Walks are for experienced country walkers with an above average fitness level. May include hills and rought country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are essential. People in doubt about their fitness are advised to contact the walk leader in advance.
Non-members are welcome to join us for 3 "trial" walks before deciding to join us. You don't need to book in advance - just turn up on the day.
All our walks are graded to give you an idea of what each one will be like. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short, easy walk first. It's better to find a walk too easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.
All our walks are led by SYW members. Please follow their instructions, don't walk ahead of them, and let them know if you decide to leave the walk before the end.
