Dear BAHR members,
Believe it or not, the time has come for me to plan the winter programme, from November 2017 to February 2018, covering the 17 Sundays listed below. Once again I am asking for help from both new and previous leaders to share a favourite walk or explore a new walk in an area that interests you. Walks can be led individually or jointly, by anyone who is a paid-up member of the Ramblers.
If you have any questions / want any help in planning a walk then if you…Continue
I'm afraid this walk has been cancelled due to illness of the leader.

Hi all! I hope you can join me on a circular walk from Amberley village via Parham House, the RSPB Pulborough Brooks Nature Reserve and then Pulborough for lunch. On the way back we come via Amberley Wild Brooks (Sussex Wildlife Trust). Bring your bins if you're a twitcher!
Pub lunch at the Oddfellows Arms at Pulborough or picnic after ca. 7 miles. I have booked a table for 10 at the pub; let me know by end of Friday if you would like a lunch. Cars are needed so…Continue
Hope you will be able to join me on Sunday for a walk in a "different" area. (I'm trying for the most unusual starting location!). A couple of pieces of important information:-
1. Please read carefully the arrangements for meeting, as time and place varies depending if travelling by car or train;
2. As I've had very little interest in the lunch I have now decided to cancel this and instead stop for a bring-your-own picnic.
- any questions…Continue

We have booked "Marroccos" near The King Alfred Hove for an end of summer Wednesday evening walks' meal on Wednesday 23rd August. This is a seafront Italian restaurant serving very good food.
We propose to meet at the Palace Pier Brighton for 7:30pm then walk to Marroccos which is 2miles away. On our way we will hopefully watch the sunset at 8:04pm. If you prefer you can meet us at Marroccos for 8:15pm.

I look forward to greeting everyone in Catsfield for our 7 mile walk. The weather forecast is good for Thursday !! Perhaps the odd shower.

We will have a Lunch stop in Battle for a Pub / Picnic.The walk should finish just after 3pm. It says in the programme that we will start in Catsfield at 10.30am, but I will wait another 10 mins…Continue
There is an alteration to the train time to London Bridge on Saturday.
The train for London Bridge leaves Brighton Station at 9.32 . This does not call at Preston Park as originally noted, so anyone who hoped to board at Preston Park will now have to go to Brighton Station.
It is not strictly necessary to purchase a Travel Card if returning by Thames Clipper, but the card allows a third off the price, and has the flexibility of returning from Greenwich by the DLR if…Continue

Hi all, a couple of ramblers have said that they would like to sponsor me doing the South Coast Mighty Hike for Macmillan on 10th June and asked if I could send them the link to do it. I thought I would let you know that another rambler, who is lovely, Ziggi, is also doing the walk. We won't be doing it together as we are in separate groups and she starts an hour earlier. I doubt that I will catch her knowing how fast she gets up a hill!
It's a fantastic cause and a pretty long…Continue
This Wednesday evening the walk will be around the Washington area. The walk will have hills as we eventually climb to Chanctonbury Ring, hopefully in time for a great sunset. We will then descend back to the pub for a well earned post walk drink.
We will meet at the south end of Preston Park (by the rose garden) at 7pm before driving to the start point in Washington.
I hope to see some of you there!
Let's hope the weather will be…Continue
