Angmering Estate Circular; Thursday 24 April

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…

This 9 mile walk starts in Bramber, near the castle, and follows the winding Adur river into Small Dole.

Circular walk from Uckfield to Fletching and return on Saturday 12 April

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.  Jean

The Run of the Downs - Rudyard Kipling

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…

Thursday 10th April - Kingston circular

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!
