Join me for a late Autumn walk from Witley. Whaaat ... another walk from Witley ! Hascombe Hill .. AGAIN. I know ... I know .... third time this year ... but it changes so much depending on the time of the year ! And in Autumn the tracks are carpeted with fallen golden beech leaves making it a very scenic walk.
Note that due to the early sunset this time of year (16:20) and longish walk we will aim for an early start from Witley Train Station of 9:15. To cover the 15 miles we'll need to set a good pace of ~3 miles / hr so please keep this in mind when signing up.
From Witley we will vist the Winkworth Arboretum (https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/winkworth-arboretum) - a National Trust property. There is a public footpath which runs through the Arboretum which we will need to stick too (otherwise it's £7 entry) - but the public footpath does give us a good look around.
After Winkworth we head to Hascombe Hill which offers stunning beech woods and great views over the Sussex countryside down towards the South Downs.
From Hascombe Hill we head back to the train station.
