All aboard the Nutbourne Express this Saturday. Train departing Brighton 9:04 ! I pre walked our route on New Years Day and there was a distinct lack of mud! Don't be put off by the distance because this walk has very gentle ascents, not too many stiles and generally good surfaces. You may wish to bring sandwiches or check out the menu at the Barley Mow Walderton before so we can pre-order any food to avoid delays at the bar!

Please join us for a hilly circular walk from East Dean, via Beachy Head and Eastbourne Seafront, returning inland over the Downs. It is one of our favourite downland walks in East Sussex, with wonderful views along the coast and over Eastbourne on a clear day. The route is scenically varied and includes a few short sections of the South Downs Way and Wealdway.
Lunch will be in the Carlisle Road area of Eastbourne or by the Wish Tower overlooking the promenade and the sea. There are…Continue

Dear BAHR members,
The next programme runs from March to June, covering the Sundays and Wednesday evenings listed below. With a total of 43 walks planned for the next programme, in order to fully complete this I need help from both new and previous leaders to share a favourite walk or explore a new walk in an area that interests you. Walks can be led individually or jointly, by anyone who is a paid-up member of the Ramblers.
No special training…Continue

It looks like we will enjoy a break from the rain on Thursday with some welcome sunshine, but who knows. Having walked the route on Sunday after a day of rain, the ground was starting to turn muddy with a few standing puddles. To try and avoid slippery slopes I have decided to reverse the walk which means a couple of steep inclines around the third quarter of the route, but you will enjoy a downhill finish. Hiking poles are recommended.
As the Frankland Arms, Washington is now closed…Continue

I have double checked train times for this fabulous walk and look forward to meeting you at Brighton station for the 8:58 train. Drivers get a lie in (meet us at 10:28), but no beer afterwards. Please text if you are coming by car in case the trains are delayed!
Poles and gaiters optional! Quite a lot is sandy rather than muddy! But there is a waterfall!

As my original route duplicated too much of Graham's recent walk, I've redesigned it, but starting at the same location. The new route (which is already on the on-line programme) will take us through Friston Forest to Exceat, and then back along the SDW over five of the Seven Sisters. It's a moderately strenuous walk, with lots of hills, but with wonderful views of the Cuckmere Valley. Walking poles are recommended. Hope to see you there. Mike

I've recently been told that the Franklin Arms at Washington has closed down so unfortunately my walk on the 10/11 will have to be picnic only so let's hope for good weather! But we will be ending the walk at Steyning which has lots of cafes and pubs.
Also, I will need a lift from PP station, it's not usually a problem but it would be reassuring if anyone driving could offer me a lift in advance, my number is 07745458567. Thanks Jill
