Tue Nov 20th Leader Phil Caunt, who has provided this description:
I intend that the walk at 10.00 a.m. on Tuesday 20th November 2018 should commence from the spacious, rear car park of the Frog and Wicket (RG27 0NS) which is situated in Eversley (on the B3272) with a grandstand view over the cricket pitch. I would like to draw on your expertise and local knowledge to define the departure time from the WI Hut.
I am hoping that some attendees will join me in providing custom to the landlord after the ramble so as to reciprocate for his geniality.
I am planning for a walk of 40 furlongs that will take in part of the Ridges and part of the Blackwater Valley path, the proportion between them being dependent on weather and "under foot" conditions on 20th November 20th.
There will not be any stiles to negotiate. There will be one moderate incline of about 40 yards to ascend.
Leave the WI hut at 0935
