Week 1 Walks
4th to 11th May 2019
Celebrating 2000 miles and 266 Walking Festival walks that I have led, this walk follows one of my first Festival walks ‘The Beautiful Bonchurch Hills’. Probably one of the most spectacular walks on the Island – it has it all; a walk that cannot be bettered!!
Walking up bridleway between fields we reach Freemantle Gate where Queen Victoria’s carriage passed to visit Appuldurcombe House. Skirting the home farm with a detour to the Worsley monument, we continue through Beech Copse with its bluebells in a circular route.
