MARCH MONTHLY MEETING
Thursday 18th March at 14.00 am on Zoom
The Garman children were all born in Walsall, in the West Midlands to middle- class parents – Dr Walter Garman (the Town’s Medical Superintendent) and his wife Marjorie Garman.
However, their eldest son Douglas’s time at Cambridge and eldest daughter Kathleen’s move to Art School in Chelsea led to a chain of events and connections which resulted in most of the family, including mother Marjorie, relocating to the Chichester area.
Martyn Bell was born in Brighton in 1945. Now retired, he has served as a local Councillor in Chichester since 2007 and was Mayor of Chichester 2018/19.
A student at the University of Lyon in the early 1960’s , he is a former Chairman of the ‘Friends of Chartres’ Twinning Association and the Oxmarket Centre of Arts and also a Co-Founder and Trustee of the ‘Secret WW2 Learning Network (www.secret-ww2.net) which specialises in the history of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) and the French Resistance.
Involvement in the organisations above sparked Martyn’s interest in Peggy Guggenheim and in turn the Garman family.
Your Favourite Walks
With spring in the air (and paths a lot less muddy) I expect many more of you will be tempted to go out walking and we would love to receive your contributions! There are no fixed requirements for the walks we post, in fact the more variety the better and similarly please do not worry too much about the format as we can always adjust that as well as add things like maps if need be. You can see the beginnings of a collection of our walks here. If you have a walk that you could send to us please use this form.
HALNAKER WINDMILL, approximately 1.5 miles.
About 1.5 miles return. This is a very easy, straightforward walk, very suitable for small children!
There are two stiles with no way around them. Can be slightly muddy.
Halnaker is about 4 miles east of Chichester on the A285 going towards Petworth. There is very limited parking at the left hand side of the road in the layby at Warehead Farm. Visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon to ensure a parking place!
The first part of the walk follows an old Roman Road (Stane Street) between high banks, covered with snowdrops, primroses and cowslips in springtime. You can almost hear the tramp of the soldiers’ boots as you walk up the stony lane!
The second half of the walk goes slightly uphill over open fields, where you may see deer but where you invariably hear (or even see) skylarks. The windmill has recently been restored and the views to the south over the sea and southwest over Chichester towards the Solent and the Isle of Wight are spectacular.
An alternative is to park at Boxgrove Village carpark (near village shop and café for refreshments) and extend it into a 5 mile circular walk around Boxgrove Common.
