As my original route duplicated too much of Graham's recent walk, I've redesigned it, but starting at the same location. The new route (which is already on the on-line programme) will take us through Friston Forest to Exceat, and then back along the SDW over five of the Seven Sisters. It's a moderately strenuous walk, with lots of hills, but with wonderful views of the Cuckmere Valley. Walking poles are recommended. Hope to see you there. Mike

The basic cost is £165 for full board, plus extras for 'better' (£7.50 per night) or 'best' rooms (£10). All rooms have en-suite facilities.

All of the pre-reserved places for the pub lunch are taken. However, this could…Continue

I've recently been told that the Franklin Arms at Washington has closed down so unfortunately my walk on the 10/11 will have to be picnic only so let's hope for good weather! But we will be ending the walk at Steyning which has lots of cafes and pubs.
Also, I will need a lift from PP station, it's not usually a problem but it would be reassuring if anyone driving could offer me a lift in advance, my number is 07745458567. Thanks Jill

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.
