Belmont School Walk

4th December 2021, 10:15 - 12:45


Meet at 10.15am for 10.30am start – Finish 1.00pm



Join the President, Chris Howard and Chairman, Gordon Jackson and Committee members of our Society to enjoy our traditional pre-Christmas walk to the summit of Holmbury Hill.

It has become a tradition that the Society does this walk on the first weekend in December. Many of our members tell us it gets them into the festive mood for the coming season.

This is a slightly more challenging walk as we have a steep hill to climb, but we will do it at a leisurely pace.

Holmbury Hill was the inspiration for Beatles musician, George Harrison to compose “Here Comes the Sun”, when he went for an early morning walk with his friend and local resident, Eric Clapton.

Belmont School is an impressive Arts & Crafts building created for Edwin Waterhouse- one of the founders of the now international consultancy firm, Price Waterhouse. The architect was George T Redmayne. The builders, Messrs Wall &Hook of Stroud, Gloucestershire, had just completed the building of the magnificent church in Holmbury St Mary in 1878.

UPDATE:  We have just heard from Belmont School to say that they are now able to host the usual mince pies and mulled wine in the front hall of Feldemore. Toilets are available.  You will need to take a rapid lateral flow test to enter the building.

As we have made no charge to join this event, we are now asking for donations on the day which will go directly to our hedgerow project.

This walk will take about an hour and a half (3.5 mile) has several strenuous hills so only fully fit walkers should attend this event.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.

This walk is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs.
