Liphook Ramblers

The day was cold and frosty but with the sun shining it was perfect for the Liphook Ramblers 10 mile Christmas walk.

Starting at Benbow Pond on the A272 between Midhurst and Petworth, the group of 12 were heading off to the Horseguards Inn at Tillington to enjoy their Christmas Lunch. First stop was at Benbow itself where the Egyptian geese and the always present black swan came to say ‘hello’.

To warm up we quickly made our way across country to the village of Lodsworth and on to Leggatts Hill where we found some nice big logs just right for sitting on while we enjoyed a warming cup of coffee or drinking chocolate.

No time to linger there, some muddy paths were waiting for us before we could get to our lunch stop at Tillington. We got through them and on to Upperton Common, climbing to meet the road near Petworth Park and before long we had reached the gate into the Park, where the deer were waiting. What a sight to see so many deer and so used to people, they stayed there for us to admire them.

No time to linger though as the pub and our Christmas lunch were only a short distance away. After a sumptuous meal which started with a glass of warming mulled wine, we set off on the return journey. First we walk along the wonderfully kept footpaths through the vineyards at Tillington, onto Pitshill and River before arriving back in Lodsworth. Here we stopped to look at St Peter’s Well, which according to the nearby sign is ‘of ancient origin’. Arriving back at Benbow Pond, with the setting sun, the Egyptian Geese and Black Swan were waiting to greet us again.

L&DR produce quarterly programmes of walks of various lengths which take place on Tuesdays, Saturdays and/or Sundays and on Wednesday evenings from May to mid August. Further details are available on their website www.liphookramblers... or can be obtained from Caroline Lemka on 07811 656287.
