Bramley and Greensand Way Walk
- Thursday 17th February -
Despite poorer weather earlier in the month Thursday the 17th turned out to be a dry day, not too cold and by the time the group set off the mist that had been present earlier had lifted to reveal clear skies.
The walk started at Bramley and Wonnersh station, a stop on the old Cranleigh line.
Closed in the sixties the station has been preserved and now provides an entry point onto what is now part of the Downs Link Footpath.
From the station we headed through Bramley and then a gentle climb up into the hills through a mix of woodland and open scenery to join the Greensand Way long distance path.
From here we headed east to join the route of the now derelict Wey & Arun Canal that had provided an inland link between the south coast and the Thames.
From here we rejoined the route of the Cranleigh line railway and returned to Bramley.
For lunch we took the short walk from the station car park to The Jolly Farmer, on the High Street in centre of Bramley. A traditional pub, it served a good selection of food and refreshments and made a very pleasant and relaxing conclusion to a most enjoyable walk.
