Another adventure

Another adventure with Gra, who planned a walk in a neighbouring county and again forgot the map! So we parked up and set off in the direction we thought best, only to find ourselves high up on a bleak part of the downs just as the heavens opened. We got drenched. I was not in the best of moods but I don't like to give up on a walk once we've started and I'm glad I didn't as soon the sun came out and we quickly dried off. 
Coming down the hill we spotted a beautiful little church in the middle of fields so had to go and investigate. It was the 12th Century St. Hubert's Chapel at Idsworth and inside were 14th Century wall paintings. I'm so glad I didn't miss this as it hadn't been on our original route.
Walking back we got caught in the rain again but warmed up by a roaring fire with a pint and packet of crisps in The Red Lion at Chalton.

What a walk and such lovely drawings! How many treasures like that there must be hidden away?

Shame you got drenched but all soon forgotten hopefully.
