Last minute announcement for early risers: Castle pub in Bramber phoned yesterday - kitchen without electricity so no hot lunch to be had there. Sandwiches available perhaps but I'll check during the walk. We can try our luck with King's Head, Upper Beeding- will phone en route to see if they can accommodate some of us. Otherwise packed lunch. We can stop at Sainsbury's Local on London Road on way out of Brighton to stock up. Susan 07776054410 or Jill 07745458567
If any car owners are planning to go to The Level (9.45am) can you please let us know as cars have been rather scarce recently. Many thanks in advance.

This Thursday's walk offers a combination of beautiful woodland scenery and great views over the Downs, with some bluebells thrown in. It could be a bit muddy, so be prepared! To reach the Dover Lane car park, from the A27 towards Arundel take the U-turn after Hammerpot, marked Worthing and Brighton, and then it's the first on the left, as indicated. Refreshments afterwards at The Fox, Patching (please note that this pub is a switch from the advertised programme). The weather looks…Continue

This 9 mile walk starts in Bramber, near the castle, and follows the winding Adur river into Small Dole. The walk then continues through farmland & woods before we ascend onto the South Downs at Edburton. We will stop here for our picnic lunch, with a stunning 360 degrees view. After lunch, the walk continues along Truleigh Hill before descending back down to the river & returning to Bramber. The gradient is gently undulating with one steep, but short, climb. There may be a bit…Continue

Thanks Chris for an excellent and varied walk yesterday. Where were those hills you mentioned? ):

The forecast is for dry weather so I hope some of you will join me on the above walk. It's 8+ miles and passes through woods and fields. There are 2 pubs in Fletching for lunch as well as a cafe and places for a picnic. I shall be at the start which is at the top of the main car park in Uckfield - aim for the church spire - but there should be transport from the meeting place at Preston Park Station at 9.30 am - London Road side.

The Weald is good, the Downs are best-
I'll give you the run of 'em, East to West.
Beachy Head and Winddoor Hill,
They were once and they are still.
Firle Mount Caburn and Mount Harry
Go back as far as sums 'll carry.
Ditchling Beacon and Chanctonbury Ring
They have looked on many a thing,
And what those two have missed between 'em
I reckon Truleigh Hill has seen 'em.
Highden, Bignor and Duncton Down
Knew Old England before the…

Fellow Thursday walkers
Having recently walked my proposed route, I will change the stretch back down into Kingston as the loose chalk and steep path are a dangerous combination. Instead, we will walk down Breach Road, which is a longer but better way to return. The walk will now be 'Leisurely' and about 6 miles long.
Hope to see you there!
