    HikeThis weeks Troop meeting was a walk near Mottisfont Abbey. After a lovely sunny and very warm day 8 scouts, 5 parents,2 leaders and a dog set out from Spearywell car park heading out into the countryside. The first part of the walk was following a national trust walk through Spearywell wood which was dappled in sunshine.

    As we started to come out of the wood we checked the map to ensure that we were still on track and checked the watch to see how we were doing. Thankfully we were still on track and because there was still lots of time Skip decided to go a different way. We headed out of the forest and walked along the side of some fields as we headed towards Dunbridge underneath and over the main trainline to Cardiff. We wound our way past the edge of Dunbridge and started to head towards Mottisfont itself. After a quick stop before we got to Mottisfont it was time to start heading back to the car park, arriving at 8.50 right on time for the end of the scout evening.

    Have a look at the route we took (I’m not sure the first part is quite right….)

    Thanks to everyone that came along on the walk, I hope you all enjoyed it.


    And finally a couple of pictures I took on the walk.
