Pre – Christmas walk from Belmont School to Holmbury Hill

5th December 2020, 10:30 - 12:30




Pre-Christmas walk for all the family from Belmont School


Meet at 10am for 10.30am start
finish at 12.30


Join the Chairman and Committee members of the charity to enjoy our traditional walk to the summit of Holmbury Hill.

This is a slightly more challenging walk as we have a steep hill to climb, but we will do it at a leisurely pace. Sadly, due to COVID, there will be no access to the school this year, or our usual mince pies and mulled wine. However, if you would like to bring a flask of coffee and some mince pies we can enjoy them in the school grounds at the end of our walk in a socially distanced manner.

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.

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, PricewaterhouseCoopers (“PwC”). 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.

We will meet at the School.   What3words ///
