Stubbington

Walking Group "D" 5 to 6 miles

Walking group "D" is intended for people who prefer to walk longer distances, typically 5 to 6 miles (8 to 10 kms). The terrain is not always flat and can include hills, but never prolonged steep slopes. Walks take place on the 4th Thursday of each month and are chosen for their interest and variety of scenery. A map and description are sent by email prior to each walk, which are generally within 30 minutes driving distance of Stubbington. The walks are mostly circular, beginning and ending at the same car park, and we always stop at the half way point for rest and refreshments. There is usually a pub or cafe near the end of the walk and we often enjoy a lunch together before parting company, but this is purely voluntary. Dogs are not permitted to avoid accidents with animals.

The July Walk

On 25 July, on Britain’s record hot day, 13 intrepid members of Walking Group D enjoyed a 5.5-mile hike through beautiful countryside northeast of Upham, near Bishop’s Waltham.This (these) view(s) are of Stephen’s Castle Down, with its racehorse gallops. Thanks to a good deal of shade and frequent pauses for water, the group finished in good shape and most members enjoyed a pint and a sandwich in the cool of the Brushmaker’s Arms. Tough, these U3A types!
