Brighton and Hove Ramblers is a local walking and social group and is part of the national Ramblers. We offer a range of walks each week. Some walks have age guides (30s-50s) but anyone with the appropriate level of fitness is welcome on any walk.
"Note the white horse painted on the hill in the centre distance (you will need to zoom in!), and the contrast between the frosty north side of the hill (left hand side of the photo) and the sun kissed south facing hill on the right. Also encompasses…"

Please note that it is quite likely that tomorrow's walk will be cancelled due to the adverse weather (heavy rain forecast during the morning). Apart from the wet forecast, the walk is in the Weald and therefore likely to be a bit of a quagmire after all the recent rain!I will however be at Preston Park Station by 9.30am just to confirm the above.See More

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. The walk returns through the lower Weald at the foot of the Downs before a final ascent back to the start of the walk.I have booked a table for 12.30 at the Royal Oak and nine people have booked on. I am unable to extend the booking because…See More
Still trying to work off evidence of the Christmas excesses? Then join me for a 9.5 mile walk through some beautiful West Sussex scenery this Saturday. I've decided to reverse the route, but you'll still get your dose of woodland and downland scenery. Full details in the Walks Programme.Mike Bates See More

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
