We're heading up to the hills to try and avoid the mud! Mainly dry on the Downs but 'damp' when we descend into Alciston and Berwick so waterproof footwear de rigeur! Several steepish climbs - you have been warned. Lunch at the Cricketers Arms (Berwick) where I have booked a table for 10 - please let me know, pronto, if you want to reserve a seat. If…Continue
Hi all! Replacement walk due to the WET AND MUD that is the Framfield and Wealdway circular at present. Hope you can join me on a linear walk from Exceat to Eastbourne over the Seven Sisters with a late lunch stop (aiming for 1.30pm) at The Beachy Head and then along the promenade at Eastbourne to the town centre. Great views and not much mud! A table is booked at the pub for 10 people, 8 spaces already booked. Contact me if you would like a place. I can try and book more places and…Continue
Unfortunately I have had to cancel the London walk on 24th January due to a knee injury. Apologies, but possibly re schedule in a few months.
Note that we will be on the Brighton / Seaford train leaving Brighton station at 9.17 tomorrow. I will look out for joiners on the train. The actual walk starts at 10.00 from the Martello tower on the seafront at Seaford, a short wak from the train station. Please see public walks programme link above at the head of page. Should finish at Berwick by 4.00/4.30. Thanks, Bill

Hi, the route is likely to be very muddy in parts, and so please have good footwear/boots and plenty of warm clothing. There may be the odd diversion, as we will need to avoid sections near the Cuckmere river. Should be fun. Bill Johnson

Caroline and I have pre walked this route today and unfortunately it's far too muddy and up to mid calve in water in some places. Apologies but it seems sensible to cancel and avoid any accidents!
Due to heavy rainfall and high winds, I have had to change several parts of the walk today. Please be aware that some road walking is now inevitable and that suitable wet weather Clothing and WALKING FOOTWEAR with good grips is critical.

The Train is now leaving Brighton at 9.30 to get to Hassocks at 9.40 which is slightly later than the original date due to a change in the train time table. If you are meeting at Hassocks meet at approximately 9.40. If you are coming to Brighton and want to try and get group tickets meet outside Marks and Spencer's in the Station.
The walk is twelve miles and it is best to bring a packed lunch. The walk has a steep accent up Ditchling Beacon but is mostly downhill the…Continue

Members might be interested to read about the early history of BAHR (RA2000), which has just been added to the "Committee Stuff" page. It was written by a former Chairman, the late Ian Carnochan some time in the mid- to late-1980s and recently passed to us by his widow, Sue.
Should be a lovely walk from Storrington, along a lovely stretch of the SDW along the then back through Amberley along the lower paths including a section of the West Sussex Literary Trail and then back through the picturesque stately home, Parham House, Park.
Lunch will be at Houghton (Amberley Station area) at either the Bridge Pub (booking for 14), Riverside Cafe or picnic option. Please can some kind drivers meet at the South end of Preston Park as usual at 09:15 and post to…Continue

Hi, I am planning to walk part of the Kennet and Avon Canal at Easter - 25 to 28 March. It would be the stretch between Hungerford and Bath, which goes through pretty countryside and has many interesting features. 50 miles or so over 4 days, which should be well manageable . The aim would be to stay at b and b's / pubs along the way or (if these prove difficult to book) then to camp. I am open to ideas. If you are interested in doing this walk, please email me on…Continue

Due to the very wet ground following recent rain and with further heavy rain forecast for most of today and all of Sunday it has regrettably been decided to cancel this walk. (The walk has been re-scheduled for 3rd April).

A Happy New Year to all our members.

New walk leaders are always needed, so could this be you? No special training is required, but…Continue
