I've just returned from the pre walk. Best place to park seems to be in the road outside the cricket ground. We pass seven pubs on the walk so can choose our lunch venue depending on progress and the weather. There is a fair amount of road walking but most of it has paved paths and the little bits that are not are on quite roads.
Hi all,Looking forward to seeing you all next Sunday!The 10 mile walk starts at Beeding Hill setting out across high downland and up to the summit of Edburton Hill before a dramatic desent through Devil's Dyke to Poynings for a pub lunch at the Royal Oak.

I did the pre walk this morning and it is exactly 6miles and took around two hours 10 minutes with no breaks. So I am allowing two-forty-five with the group and a decent coffee break. There is a very long and nasty hill towards the end but there is a short cut for anyone who wants to take it. You will miss a good view of Amberley if take this option. As regards lunch I enquired at the "Moon" in Storington and they are happy to have us but it would be helpful if anyone who wants to eat goes to…See More

I have taken the decision to cancel the walk tomorrow for health and safety reasons. The stretch before lunch includes exposed areas up to the SDW that in strong winds combined with slippery mud are far from ideal. Forecast is here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/26...Apologies everyone- cancelling is a first for me! Best wishes and hope to see you soonSee More
In view of the forecast of heavy rain for most of tomorrow (Saturday) and the distance etc, I have reluctantly decided to POSTPONE this walk. Apologies to anyone who was looking forward to a real soaking. The walk has been re-scheduled for Saturday 7 January. MikeSee More
Dear Brighton & Hove Ramblers MembersAre you interested in your right to roam? Did you know that there are many Open Access areas that you can't get to? If so, read on:I'm currently developing a programme to identify Open Access Land with potential and actual access and Right of Way issues. There are pockets of land out there which are designated as Open Access but there is no physical way of getting into them because there is no Right of Way or that Right of Way is blocked.

I am leading the Small Dole, Edburton and Bramber Circular Walk this Sunday.The walk initially quite flat, passing through farmland and woods, but ascends very steeply onto the South Downs at Edburton. We follow the South Downs Wway along the ridge to Truleigh Hill and descend gradually with views of Adur Valley, crossing the River Adur to join the Downs Link. This path takes us on to Bramber and Upper Beeding for a pub lunch or picnic. The shorter return leg heads north along the riverside…See More
Have you tried to use the bridleway past Lewes racecourse buildings since June and found most of it fenced off? Or are you concerned to read that it has been fenced off?The route with the problems is just north of the racecourse buildings, on the route that runs between Mount Harry at one end and Lewes Town Centre or Lewes Prison at the other. It used to be very wide, up to 11 metres across. If you were going to or from the prison direction you just kept straight ahead. In June 2016 the…See More
