Haslemere Circular Hike

Haslemere Circular

Gentle woods in the morning and a climb to Black Down in the afternoon

Time Out walk 22 from book 1

Length: 14km

Difficulty: 4 out of 10

Cost: £15

We will meet at 9.15am in Waterloo station under the huge clock in the centre of the station.

The route goes through very beautiful countryside. It is mainly National Trust land - mixed woods with blackberries and bluebells and forests of pine trees.

Lunch stop in the quaint Fernhurst village. Please bring a packed lunch. You can either eat on the village green or in the back garden of the Red Lion (you will need to buy a drink).

In the afternoon, we will climb to Black Down, the highest point in the historic county of Sussex (280m). From the top we will enjoy outstretching views towards the south downs.

After the walk, we will head to the White Horse Hotel for drinks and food. Trains back to London are at 18 and 49 past the hour from platform 2 or 3 (over the footbridge). The station is 10 minutes walk away from the pub.

We will travel using group save tickets. I will count how many people there are at 9.20am and will buy tickets accordingly. You will need to pay me £15 on the train so please bring cash. This includes the cost of the train and a contribution to the club.

The walk will go ahead regardless of the weather conditions, so please come prepared, bring your waterproofs and wear ankle supporting shoes.

Our walks are very popular, and our "no show" policy applies to all including this walk. Do not become a "former member" please RSVP accurately. This is a Time Out walk. If you want to see more details of the walk or print out the instructions please go to
