I walk the dog early each morning and was getting bored with the same old walk around the village so I thought I would try something different.
I set off from the village green towards Elstead Mill and, as I was crossing the bridge, I noticed a footpath sign pointing down along the river. I had never walked that way so I thought I would try it. The path took me along the river, across fields, and through some woodlands so quite varied. Some road walking, on quiet country lanes, was unavoidable but I didn’t meet even one car.
This was a lovely walk, and the paths were fairly dry but clearly liable to get very muddy after rain. It was easy to find my way as I always turned right.
What walks have you been doing? If you send me details I will share your walks on our blog.
Here is a map of the route I took.
