Thursday 13th October Westoning walk led by Maureen & Malcolm

This 5 mile walk had 12 walkers
Walking through the village we made our way onto  the Sampshill Rd that led us up to Upper Sampshill farm,  Passing through the farm we carried on and through Portobello farm,
Unfortunately a slight deviation to our intended route had to be taken, when we came across a stubborn bullock blocking our path.
Safely on the other side of the hedge, we stopped for a well deserved coffee break

Carrying on towards Pulloxhill hill, we encountered feeding time for the sheep in the fields as we passed through.  Then over some recently lightly ploughed fields we arrived at the water tower.

Some road walking led us down towards and past Higham Bury, where we encountered a group of walkers from Crouch End, part of the U3A, before rejoining the Sampshill Rd and making our way back to Westoning for the end of a throughly enjoyable walk, that started out on a cold misty morning and ended in a lovely sunny day.

Track of walk, walked in anti-clockwise direction.
