Greetings all! For the hardy of you the walk tomorrow is a circular walk from West Hoathly via Minepit Wood, Turners Hill and Gravetye Manor. In the morning we walk near the Bluebell Railway via Minepit Wood and Crawley Down to Turners Hill for a picnic lunch. There are two pubs at Turners Hill for those who would like a pub lunch. In the afternoon we walk via the grounds of Gravetye Manor with fine views and hopefully some beautiful colours in the trees.
Hope to see you…

This promises to be a lovely walk with autumn colours in plenty of mixed woodland. But, I'm not happy with one of the paths on the original route, consequently I have amended it so we have a long morning and a short afternoon reducing the total length to 8 miles (12.8 Km). The new route takes in all the main highlights of the area, passing through Little Bognor, Flexham Park, Bedham, Lithergate Common and Fittleworth Common, to the Swan Inn, then a loop over Hesworth Common, taking in 2…Continue

I have shortened this walk slightly so it is now 14Km (8.7miles) and changed the pub to "The World's End". The morning is still a good length over undulating downland (not steep) with wonderful views and the afternoon is shorter with a gentle, shady climb up through woods. The pace will be slightly more leisurely than originally anticipated but I hope to finish at about 3.15pm.

I have already booked my accommodation for a short week's walking in the Peak District National Park this Autumn and invite any Brighton and Hove Ramblers to join me.
I am basing walks from Castleton which gives easy access by public transport to the White Peak and the Dark Peak and is a good base with a decent hostel (Losehill Hall YHA- several single and twin rooms still available!) and a variety of B+B and hotel options to suit most budgets! There are a range of pubs for eating…Continue

Saturday, 8 September 2018 (Group: Brighton & Hove)
Meeting time 9:20, Start time 10:30
Moderate 9 miles / 14.5 km (Estimated finish time: 14:30)
We prewalked this route last week and it has a little bit of everything- far more varied than a glance at the map would suggest- but only two small hills. There is one slightly soft/overgrown stretch but it is otherwise on good tracks and paths- you may want long socks or trousers unless you are very hardy.

Please support the first High Weald Walking Festival. The High Weald lies on the eastern edge of the South Downs National Park and we often have walks there. The programme has been put together entirely by volunteers - including several members of Sussex Area committee - on a shoestring budget of £750. What they have produced is fantastic: 36 walks of all types and distances from a 2 mile stroll to a 9.5 mile ramble. There really is something for everyone!
The intention/hope is to…Continue

I have noticed that the Post Code is wrong. The grid reference is correct (TQ367025). The Post Code is BN2 7BS. The walk does not start in Rottingdean but outside Blind Veterans UK which some of you probably know better as St Dunstans at Ovingdean Gap. There is roadside parking in Greenways, the road leading off the roundabout towards Ovingdean Village.

We have been notified of the following scheme:
I am starting to promote a new Volunteer Path Warden scheme in Brighton & Hove – whereby regular users of the Public Rights of Way network can ‘adopt’ a path(s) that they use regularly – to help keep an eye on them.
I’m wondering if this is something you might be able to advertise with your local membership? I’ve…Continue

If anyone gets really really hot when out walking in the summer, I purchased these as I knew that the South Coast Mighty Hike would be a killer- they were fabulous and I'll be wearing them out on a Sunday for the rest of the summer!
