Fletching Circular Walk 22nd February

Just a request for those attending this walk. There is a small car park in Fletching which may only have limited space. If possible please come to Preston Park Station at 9-30 so that we can arrange for the fewest cars to travel. If you have a full car by all means go direct.

Stanmer and Sussex University border path Saturday 17th February 2018

Hi everybody, the forecast is good (at the moment), who knows, even the mud may have dried up.

This walk starts and finishes early to allow everyone to either go to the Albion Cup game (starts at 3) or to escape the bedlam in good time! Be aware that there has been some fairly crazy match-day parking at Wild Park, so you may want to consider your getaway if parking there!

In view of recent discussions, this is an assistance dog (and Humans) walk only.

Meeting…

Dogs on Walks - "Bring your dog"

The national ramblers web site is very positive about dogs on ramblers walks. In the group walks section it says

" Bring your dog

We know that many people enjoy walking with their four-legged friends, so we encourage all our walking groups to allow dogs on walks. Registered Assistance Dogs are allowed on any walk."



It is disappointing to see that Brighton and Hove Ramblers is further discouraging dogs and their humans from walking with the group by increasing the…

Alfriston Walk Saturday 10th February

Hi all,

Two messages for the walk on Saturday first off the start time for the walk is wrong it should be 10.15. Thanks to Jules for spotting it and apologies from me for not spotting it. 

Message number two is can anyone confirm they are bringing a car to Preston Park on Saturday morning so I can be sure of a lift (public transport to Alfriston is a bit of a pain) and Jules is also hoping to get a lift there.

Weather's looking ok but there will be some mud.

See…

Sunday 11 Feb - Patcham - Plumpton circular

Hello.

Due to very muddy conditions around Ditchling I have modified the route to avoid Ditchling and make The Half Moon at Plumpton our lunchtime stop. Distance is now 12 rather than 11 miles. All other details remain unchanged but please check beforehand.

Hope to see you on Sunday!

Cheers,

Stuart

Saturday walk this week 3rd Feb - Shoreham start

Join me this Saturday for a varied 9-10 mile walk with stunning views - starting in old Shoreham, climbing onto the downs via Mill Hill and heading north to Beeding Hill before dropping down into Upper Beeding for a pub lunch at the Kings Head. Returning to Shoreham along the west bank of the River Adur and the Shoreham Toll Bridge. Very hilly pre-lunch; flat and likely to be muddy after lunch.

 

We are meeting at the Red Lion pub in Shoreham at 10am. The No. 2 bus…
