Brookwood Cemetery

This walk was lead by Janet and Lynne, starting at The Cricketer's Pub.  13 walkers congregated at the pub,  and set off to Pirbright church, where we stopped to look at the grave of Stanley, the reporter to found Gr Livingstone. We  proceeded along canal under the station in Brookwood to the cemetery. We strolled in a leisurely way around the cemetery,  stopping for a break at the American chapel which was open. Then we continued over Pirbright common and woods back to the pub,  where 5 of us had an enjoyable lunch together.

Shalford & Chilworth

This walk was lead by Margo and John.  14 of us set off, joined by 2 tail-enders who between them remembered the walk description and had a bit of local knowledge, and managed to catch us up. We had a very pleasant walk south of the Chantries, with views up to St Martha’s from a different direction. We had a good arial display from a Buzzard, and managed to find a few paths that were new to even regular SWSW walkers.

This was followed by a relaxed (i.e. slow…) lunch at the Parrot in Shalford, but nice to enjoy the sunny garden.
