Saturday 20th January - Lewes Circular via Mount Harry and Offham Hill

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.

Walk on Saturday 6 January: Kingsfold circular

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.

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…
