High Weald Walking Festival : 15 - 23 September 2018

Please support the first High Weald Walking Festival. The High Weald lies on the eastern edge of the South Downs National Park and we often have walks there. The programme has been put together entirely by volunteers - including several members of Sussex Area committee - on a shoestring budget of £750. What they have produced is fantastic: 36 walks of all types and distances from a 2 mile stroll to a 9.5 mile ramble. There really is something for everyone!

The intention/hope is to…

East Brighton Deans. Thursday 30 August

I have noticed that the Post Code is wrong.  The grid reference is correct (TQ367025).  The Post Code is BN2 7BS.  The walk does not start in Rottingdean but outside Blind Veterans UK which some of you probably know better as St Dunstans at Ovingdean Gap.  There is roadside parking in Greenways, the road leading off the roundabout towards Ovingdean Village.

How to stay cool (er)

If anyone gets really really hot when out walking in the summer, I purchased these as I knew that the South Coast Mighty Hike would be a killer- they were fabulous and I'll be wearing them out on a Sunday for the rest of the summer!

Sorry WALK POSTPONED Holmwood and Leith Hill to Dorking. 7th July

It may not surprise walkers on Diana's excellent Ashdown forest walk last Saturday, but unfortunately, a colourfully sprained ankle so spectacularly, yet mundanely, acquired means  I will be postponing the Leith Hill walk until later in the year. I intend spending the next few days with my foot up on ice watching the World Cup!

Apologies for any inconvenience caused, and thanks to the kindly Sherpas who helped me make it back to base camp on Saturday.

Walking the paths around Offham Chalk pits, near Lewes

Many people walk the paths around the old chalk pits at Offham, near Lewes .

But almost none of these paths is on the rights of way map so, in theory, any one of them could be stopped up at any time. 

So, although there is no immediate threat, the Ramblers Association is setting out to add the paths to the rights of way map by collecting evidence that they have been used by the public for the past 20 years. (since 1998)  If you have walked on some or all of these paths please…
