30s-50s Whiteways Forest and Downs Circular - Sunday 20th September

I hope several of you are looking forward to the Whiteways (near Arundel) walk on Sunday. It should be a lovely lush woodland ending with a gorgeous stretch of the SDW and several great vistas. There are very few hill climbs, although it is definitely not flat, and no real mud either. There is however, one gentle but long hill, rather lusciously named the Gumber. Although there will not be a pub stop, there will be several pleasant places to have our picnic lunch and cake-heavy snack stops,…

Message from Luisa our friend from Tenerife

Luisa joined a few of our walks this Summer and loved every single one of them. As she is not a member, she has asked me to post a small message, for all of you who met her, on her behalf:

"Hello, it´s Luisa here. I´m back in Tenerife. I have already gone hiking: "Camino del Risco- Buenavista del Norte". It was hot and we went up a rocky, steep path and down again to finish the trail with a swim, and that was lovely!

I miss Brighton, the South Downs, the mild weather and also the… Continue

Reminder: Hassocks and Sayer's Common circular Sunday 13th September 2015

This is a pretty walk heading westwards from Hassocks with lovely views of the Downs. It is just under 12 miles but is flat so give it a try. The forecast is mixed and if it is wet we will have the option of shaving 2-3 miles off the distance if that is what the group wants. Option of picnic or pub lunch in Sayer's Common, do come along!

A varied 12½ mile walk through the attractive Wealden landscape on the East Sussex and Kent border. Exploring the path by the northern shore of Bewl Water is a particular highlight.

IMPORTANT - Change of Times for Hastings and Fairlight Heights Circular - Sunday 6th Sept 2015

Unfortunately, there are no trains running on Sunday between Brighton and Lewes.

This dictates a change of times for the Hastings walk this Sunday, which is defined as a public transport walk.

The train journey for Hastings departs Brighton at 09:14, but has now been routed with a change of trains at Haywards Heath, arriving at Hastings at 10:52.
