On 21th March, twelve lucky walkers set off from the Plough Inn at Grateley on the only clear sunny day of the week. Our walk took us down the leafy glades of Georgia Lane out to the boundary of Middle Wallop Air Base and then north across Georgia Down. Although seemingly quite flat, the Down is actually the highest point of that part of Salisbury Plain and is notorious for its strong winds blowing in directly from the Atlantic, and it did not disappoint! The path back to Grateley tracked the main railway line to the south, passed right through the middle of Gollands Farm, a large working arable establishment, and then behind the Monxton Road Driving Range from where several golf balls were retrieved. Having covered four and a half miles in two and a quarter hours, the party adjourned to sample the excellent new Pensioners' Lunch menu at the Plough Inn courtesy of landlord Mike.
