Tuesday 30th April 10:15, 12½ miles: 4 Marks out of 4 (Marks). A perfect score for this route through beautiful, gently-rolling Hampshire countryside from Chawton Park Wood (north of the village of Four Marks). Our route, on byways, paths and quiet lanes, takes us through woods and fields. From the car park we head north to Lower Wield; our return goes through Bentworth and Beech and on the Writers' Way. (The latter runs parallel to the, sadly unsighted, Watercress Line.) Assistance dogs only. Start: SU672360 Chawton Park Wood Car Park. At the north end of Boyneswood Road, where it turns sharp left, carry straight on, onto a narrow lane before immediately turning sharp right onto a gravel road that leads into the car park. (Sat Navs use 57 Boyneswood Road.). Bring packed lunch GU34 5ED (51.12015,-1.04053) ///driftwood.headlines.arranged. Difficulty Moderate. Leader Keith B, 0778 046 4115.
