It’s been a while since we did a 10km hike but it looks like we’ve still got what it takes! And boy was it worth it…
The circular walking route starting at Newland’s Corner near Guildford provided stunning views of the Surrey Hills, windy woodland paths that descended into the valley just enough to provide a challenging but not insurmountable climb back up and the eerie yet tranquil calm of the Silent Pool.

The highlight for me was definitely stumbling across the church of St.Martha-on-the-hill. I’m so glad you insisted we stick to the trail; I can just imagine many a hiker choosing to forego that detour thereby missing out on the picturesque church and the majestic view it commands from the top of the hill as it oversees its parishioners below.

The weather was glorious, the company even better and the ‘Truck Art’ kurti you were wearing is one of my favourites.
