Update 30's-50's Lewes, Southease and Glynde Circular 24th September 2017

Following the new walk leader planning meeting I felt my walk could do with further description!

There is a steep ascent after southease and and steep descent off the South Downs towards Glynde, this is uneven under foot. We have to cross the A27 to get to the village.

After lunch there is a steep steady ascent followed by undulating paths to the golf… Continue

30s-50s East Dean to Alfriston and Exceat Sunday (3rd September) - updated times

I've just realised that the bus times I had been sent were for the winter timetable, so I have updated on the Ramblers website to the new times (depart / arrive 25 minutes later; walk start changed from 10.30 to 10.45 / when bus arrives).  Weather forecast at the moment dry and cloudy / 17 degrees.  Hopefully see lots of you there :)
