From park to N, pleasant enough walk in the woods.rhalstead31/03/2019
Lovely stroll on sandy paths to summit decking from car park to N, but I made a pickle of finding a link south to Blackwater Hill - felled brashings and a 400m verge walk on dual carriageway to sanctuary of a bridleway on the Great Heath. Down to the east the River Avon splits and rejoins forming a potential SIB. Later visited it - reached by a fisherman’s bridge. Down to the west is Hurn Airport. Historically it was the starting point for the 3 day passenger flight to Australia in converted Lancaster bombers, and for 3 months in 1945 it was UK’s only international airport before Heathrow opened. In 1989 visitors could enjoy Concorde champagne flights looping for 1hr 40 mins over the Bay of Bisco and back for the sake of reaching Mach 2 (1534mph) but felt as they were not moving at all. Passengers would have felt more speed wandering slowly over Ramsdown, for a lot less money and no claustrophobia, but bragging that you reached 3mph I guess isn’t quite the same.Chris Pearson24/03/2019
