Saturday First Walk Milford to Haslemere TOCW1.27

TOCW1 walk 27 Milford to Haslemere
11.7 miles (18.7km) rated 6 out of 10, but the proposed route is apparently easier.

There are options on this walk and I propose the route keeping to the Punch Bowl rim (para 47), and then taking in Gibbet Hill & Sailor's Stone option (para 69). This walk has had some updates and I would recommend using the download instructions for the proposed options.

The description mentions sandy bridleways and heathland as well as a number of fine views.

Travel: Take the 1015 Haslemere train from Waterloo (Clapham 1022) arriving Milford at 1105 . There is a good return service from Haslemere xx02, xx15, xx 32 and a slower xx.39 (check times after 2000). Buy a return to Haslemere. If you don't have a railcard, check the SWT £15 offer.

Lunch: Three Horse­shoes pub in Thursley (tel. 01252 703268), 5 miles from the start. I'm advised that it is worth calling to book (lunch is 12.30-14.15).

l=lunch for 4 in the excellent Three Horseshoes pub in Thursley. Superb beer, cider, and food. Table was booked the preceding Monday. Don't try and eat your own rations at this pub, either in the back garden or in the smokers shelter at the front, otherwise you will be chased off the premises.
m=mud one man down, seriously someone turned back before lunch. In the afternoon we seemed to fragment Into 3 groups with four making it back to Haslemere station, without a stop for tea.

One on a later train. A lovely walk with nice views and I will definitely do it again.
