Dav and I have always wanted to walk more since our Dorset trip but things keep popping up and then it was winter.
2 weeks ago my colleague found a walking group organising a 7 miles walk (ie 11km) in the country side. She invited us knowing we would be keen to try join. This was our first long distance walk and it will be walking in the dark (after sunset).
The walk wasnt too difficult.. not too leisurely but was done at a good pace. It was really dark and at times we wouldnt know what we’re stepping on. We took about 3.5 hours to complete the walk which according to the leader was really fast.
Here’s the description of the walk provided by the walking group’s website:
Evening Walk – Gomshall to Guildford
Come join us and our friends in the Hammersmith, Fulham & Wandsworth Group for a walk in the moonlight (hopefully) through Shere, St. Martha’s Hill and Chantries.
