Gangers Hill

Gangers Hill

One week into the New Year we had some snow, and I went out and took some photographs.

This is on Gangers Hill on the North Downs Way.  Someone told me that in the olden days a gang of travellers lived in this wood. They gathered and sold firewood. They also kept pigs and bred fish (in some man-made ponds in the wood) in order to survive through winter.

According to the Ramblers’ Association (link above):

For much of its length the Way parallels the old route known as the Pilgrim’s Way between Winchester and Canterbury. Much of the traditional route of the Pilgrim’s Way is now part of the modern road network and walkers wishing to follow it are advised to use the North Downs Way as an alternative.

The National Trail site has a brief history of the Pilgrims’ Way.
