Just a reminder about this Saturday's fine walk! The weather is looking fair but more comfortable for walking than recently. This walk will explore the quieter northern escarpment of the Eastbourne Downs!
The full walk is long for a Saturday but there is a chance for people to stop at Alfriston and to finish there if preferred.
Packed lunch on the Long Man and lots of refreshment opportunities at the end if desired, including the appropriately named Old Boot Inn!

Please note the car park at the start point of this walk is quite small and there will not be room for large numbers of cars. Please arrange to share lifts and fill up cars as much as possible.
