Walk Across Bookham Common

7 members and wives took advantage of good weather for a walk around this National Trust site and its surroundings. Following the broad track across the common, we passed the locality known locally as the “Isle of Wight” (alas no sea in site) until we reached some manicured farmland. Chasemore Farm appears to be given over to horse rearing and training and we saw horses being exercised over the well-kept paddocks from the hill top, from which there are good views.

We continued past a large house the locals call Bookham Grange, before returning to the Common itself, and a muddy footpath near to the boundary.

Fortunately we soon reached a good broad pathway across the Common, which is very wooded, and on to our start point giving us a trip of about 3.5 miles.

No walk is complete without a pub stop, in this case the “Windsor Castle” at Little Bookham, which rounded-off the day very well.
We always welcome extra pairs of feet, so if any of you feel like a pleasant mix of socialising and gentle exercise, come and join our next walk- just watch the website!
