The Valley and the Farm Walk/M*E*A*S Punchbowl Day
On Sunday the 4th of September 2011

Tto celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first publication of
The Valley and the Farm (1971-2011)
William Morris will lead a Walk he has devised, which will explore the book locations.

On our return from what promises to be a fascinating walk we will have picnic tea in the gardens of Thursley Village Hall (inside if weather not good) with a quiz, book-swap and get-together.

Meet at Thursley Village Hall
on Dye House Lane, Thursley GU8 6QD
Walk to set off at 10.30am.

Please be sure to arrive in good time. The Village Hall will be open from 10.00am.
Cars can be parked in the Village Hall car park.
You will need strong walking shoes as we shall use footpaths and cover uneven ground.
Pack food and drink as there is no shop in Thursley.

The Walk: Our walk will celebrate the first publication of The Valley and the Farm.
We shall visit the Wild Valley and key locations around Punchbowl Farm.

Monica Edwards saw a 'ghost rider’ in the area of the Devil’s Punch Bowl.
We will investigate this little-known incident by following a Ghost Trail, using the descriptions of those who discussed it with Monica Edwards.

Following the walk we will return to the Village Hall for cups of tea (provided by M*E*A*S) and to have our picnics.
Please, bring whatever food you like to eat. But if anyone wants to bring along some homemade cakes, scones, cream….to share, we can turn it into a Punchbowl Farm tea!
After/around tea-time we will have a quiz and a book-swap – so, don’t forget to bring any spare copies of books you would like to swap or lend.

We hope that you will be able to join us on 4th September.

It would be good to know numbers in advance, so please let us know if you intend coming along.
