We hit the jackpot this month!
On June 13th, in perfect weather , warm with blue skies, nine of us set out from Easebourne.
We crossed the Goodwood Golf Course and quickly came across the Queen Elizabeth Oak. This is one of the oldest in England being 800-1000 years old and 12.8 metres in girth. It was from here that Queen Elizabeth 1st is said to have used a bow and arrow.
We then walked along country paths to Lodsworth and upwards and back through forest paths. As it was hot we were allowed two breaks!
Returning to Easebourne we passed a wooden memorial at the side.It was known as Nathan’s post, and carried the words “He does not die who can bequeath some influence to the land he knows”. The condition of the land was obvious from the strength of the crops.
Lunch was very welcome at the White Horse,which is famed for the size of its meat pies.
Thank you Richard for another glorious day.
