At Liphook 6 alighted from the train and 2 caught up at lunch having done a sort of Haslemere circular, so =8 in total. The day was =sunny, bright and breezy, the fresh cool autumn wind rustling the trees. The colour was impressive with mainly yellows and green and the paths were like thick cushions with all the leaf fall. We got lost in the woods a few times, splitting up and rejoining again. A good lunch was enjoyed in the Red Lion, the service was incredibly quick and the stew was hearty. One decided to press on without lunch as he said he was in training for a trip to Mt Kilimanjaro (!). We had some rain as we decended into Haslemere but not much. The group split between Darnleys and the White Heart and we all got the 17:17 train back to town - a lovely day out.
