This Thursday's Ashdown Forest Walk

Wren's Warren car park on the B2026 is quite small.  If full, I suggest the Piglets car park back down the road and then walk onto the heath, where there is a wide path up to the start point.

The walk has a number of ups and downs, 4 stiles, one short muddy section, and is 6 miles, taking about 3 hours.

Tomorrow's Wisborough Green Walk (5th Ma

I've just been checking out some of this walk and it's nearly perfect with the dappled sunlight through the trees, bluebells and other wild flowers, tree blossom and lunch by the canal. There aren't many stiles and no big hills, but the one down side is there are a number of patches of wet sloshy mud. It's well worth coming along but I would recommend stout boots, gaiters and walking poles.

Walk on Sunday (6th May) - Ditchling Beacon to Plumpton Green Circular (with a sting in the tail!)

Sunday 29th April: Blatchington - Saddlecombe Circular - 10 miles

The weather forecast isn't brilliant but then not too bad either - OK in the morning and possible rain in the afternoon. It'll be muddy in parts so please come prepared with stout boots and rain gear! The lunch stop will be at the Wildflour Cafe at Saddlecombe Farm which does sandwiches, soup etc. but I strongly advise you bring a picnic lunch as there is often a queue at the weekends. Don't let the forecast put you off as it's a lovely walk and the company will more than make up for…

Dorking to Reigate via The Greensand Way 14th April 2018

I walked this route on Monday and the good news is spring has reached the Surrey Hills. This really is too good a walk to miss.The scenery is wonderful, much of the walk is on well drained sand or firm tracks and we even pass a pub used in filming "4 Weddings and A Funeral." Furthermore, we have a decent forecast for Saturday.

The bad news is  the March downpours and the April showers have also done their work, so boots will be needed and poles may help if you like a…

Thursday, 1st March Walk

Due to the fact heavy snow and winds are forecast for tomorrow I think the Bo Peep Car Park will be too dangerous so this walk is cancelled. Weather permitting I will lead a local walk instead, if you are interested please come to Preston Park or ring me in the morning using the number on the programme.

Fletching Circular Walk 22nd February

Just a request for those attending this walk. There is a small car park in Fletching which may only have limited space. If possible please come to Preston Park Station at 9-30 so that we can arrange for the fewest cars to travel. If you have a full car by all means go direct.

Stanmer and Sussex University border path Saturday 17th February 2018

Hi everybody, the forecast is good (at the moment), who knows, even the mud may have dried up.

This walk starts and finishes early to allow everyone to either go to the Albion Cup game (starts at 3) or to escape the bedlam in good time! Be aware that there has been some fairly crazy match-day parking at Wild Park, so you may want to consider your getaway if parking there!

In view of recent discussions, this is an assistance dog (and Humans) walk only.

Meeting…

Dogs on Walks - "Bring your dog"

The national ramblers web site is very positive about dogs on ramblers walks. In the group walks section it says

" Bring your dog

We know that many people enjoy walking with their four-legged friends, so we encourage all our walking groups to allow dogs on walks. Registered Assistance Dogs are allowed on any walk."



It is disappointing to see that Brighton and Hove Ramblers is further discouraging dogs and their humans from walking with the group by increasing the…
