Please join us on our walk this Sunday.
The weather is forecast to be reasonable this Sunday with no rain although under foot it may be muddy so please bring appropriate walking boots and poles if need be.
This is a circular walk from Falmer Station via Falmer Pond to Lewes and back to Falmer by a different route.
There are fantastic views of the Sussex Downs. If you prefer to walk one way there are frequent trains from Lewes back to Falmer and Brighton.

It is one of our favourite walks in Sussex, with wonderful views along the coast and over Eastbourne on a clear day. The route is scenically varied and includes a few short sections of the South Downs Way and Wealdway.
Lunch will be in the Carlisle Road area of Eastbourne or by the Wish Tower overlooking the promenade and the sea. There are several…Continue

Go for a walk rather than shopping or doing the housework! I did the pre-walk last Sunday and the going underfoot was nice and dry so expecting the same on Saturday. Some glorious views over the Downs from the old Lewes race course, Blackcap and Mount Harry. Forecast is reasonable but there could be the odd shower so come prepared. Drink and/or lunch in The Swan which is a Harveys pub for those who care about such things! Hope to see you there.

There will be mud and steep sections so please bring sturdy boots and poles if you need…Continue

I pre-walked this walk today. Very muddy and squelchy, but if you like the sound of rushing streams, rustic charm, some beautiful Wealden views in an area less visited and a lovely pub for lunch, then you'll enjoy this walk. Only five stiles and no hills - just a few gentle inclines. Walking poles strongly recommended. Hope to see you there. Mike

Surrey Raid! Dorking, Denbies Vineyard and Polesden Lacey
Saturday, 13 January 2018
Unfortunately we need need to tweak the start time for this walk thanks to Rail Improvement buses which have added 40 minutes to our journey out and two changes.
I will attempt to lead the walk but will meet at 9am at Brighton station to catch the 9:10 replacement bus. The original start time would have arrived too late to enjoy a longish walk. In theory we…Continue

This undulating 10½ mile walk will begin at 10.15am from the 'Lintons' car park in the Ashdown Forest, between Wych Cross and Coleman's Hatch. The starting point provides one of the most scenic views northwards over the Ashdown Forest and the Sussex Weald. Along our route the countryside is fairly varied, and the wooded sections always look attractive in Autumn. We will be passing several places featured in the recent film ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’, including Pooh Sticks Bridge and the…Continue
