HW 44 The Sherborne Valley, London Road

We meet this month at 12 noon at the ROYAL OAK on the London Road at Whitley. This has the advantage of both being open on a Sunday and serving Sunday lunch, which the pubs on Gosford Street don't.

At 12:30pm we set off along the London Road and then cross Charterhouse Fields to the Charterhouse. This is going to be open on this day, so I hope to be able to arrange a tour for us. From the Charterhouse we take Harper Road to Gulson Road and thence WHITEFRIARS OLD ALEHOUSE for 1:45pm, if we have stopped at the Charterhouse.

At 2:15pm we set off again, walking down Gosford Street to Calais Bridge and turning right in to Shut Lane, which really was shut for decades, until the building of student accommodation brought it back into use. We take Charterhouse Road and then paths to pass the Charterhouse again. We walk along Terry Road and then Humber Road to come to the tunnels under the railway lines. The first tunnel has ornate portals which are nationally listed monuments. Then we pass the incinerator and come to Shortley Bridge, the site of mills centuries ago. From here it is a short walk past Murray Lodge back to the ROYAL OAK for the end, and lunch perhaps at 3:00pm ( or earlier if we haven't stopped at the Charterhouse )
