Seaford to Lewes walk Sunday May 7th

Hi All. Just to let you know that the Trevor Arms in Glynde has unfortunately closed down since I posted this walk! I put a message on Meetup but want all Ramblers to be aware that this will now have to be a picnic walk. There is a small tea room in Glynde but it wouldn't be fair to descend on them all at once so please bring food and drink. Hope for fine weather. Tess

Tomorrow's Walk (Thursday 2 Feb) - Staplefield

Please note that it is quite likely that tomorrow's walk will be cancelled due to the adverse weather (heavy rain forecast during the morning).  Apart from the wet forecast, the walk is in the Weald and therefore likely to be a bit of a quagmire after all the recent rain!

I will however be at Preston Park Station by 9.30am just to confirm the above.

Saturday 14th January. Old Heathfield Circular

I've just returned from the pre walk. Best place to park seems to be in the road outside the cricket ground. We pass seven pubs on the walk so can choose our lunch venue depending on progress and the weather. There is a fair amount of road walking but most of it has paved paths and the little bits that are not are on quite roads.
