Monday Evening Special Super Full Plough, Wind, Worm or Chaste Moon Walk: Guildford to Godalming (map-led)

Monday Evening Special Super Full Plough, Wind, Worm or Chaste Moon Walk: Guildford to Godalming (map-led)

Distance:          5 miles or 8 km for those more metrically minded 

Difficulty:         1 out of 10

Train:                18:00 Portsmouth Harbour train from London Waterloo, arriving Guildford at 18:31 – buy a day return to Godalming

Return:             Trains from Godalming are at 20:42; 20:54; 21:12; 21:25; 21:42; 21:54; 22:12 and 22:25

The full moon in March is a supermoon….which means (should it actually be visible) that it will look bigger than usual – particularly as it rises….It goes by many names….my favourite combination of them being the chaste worm moon…..Many of the names correlate with the coming of spring……not far away now…..This is a simple map-led walk along the Wey navigation from the center of Guilford to Godalming along a tow path with a meal or drink for those who wish at one of the hostelries in Godalming….

If you're going through Guildford Park, don't forget that the weir bridge is gone requiring a short detour along the road to cross the river.

Alighted from the delayed specified train and searched around the platform and exit to Guildford station, finding no obvious walkers...explored outside the station finding heavy clouds, lots of rain and no sign of a super worm or chaste moon...so, this lonely correspondent hopped on the 19:01 back to London.....n=1 in an aborted w=total-wash-out....maybe next time things will be better...

Kudos to you for having the imagination to schedule this potential gem.
