yesterday, Thursday the 5th, I completed my 3rd walk with the group.I must say I enjoyed just like the other two occasions.I could have enjoyed lot more if only..? Being the mid week I assumed that most of the group are retired like me or semi retired.This walk meant to be a leisurely walk.Why not stop and look around and admire the view when we reach a spot.After all we have no train to catch. Why not allow time to interact among the group while admiring the view.Say just at least 5…Continue

Meet 11.00 am Lewes Station then walk over the downs to Glynde via Mt Caburn with views of the Ouse valley towards Newhaven.
Lunch at the Trevor Arms and then return for tea in Lewes.
The walk is really only six miles and for the fainthearted there is a train option back to Lewes after lunch!
"And what do you do?" It’s often the dreaded question. But how about “And what would you like to do?” The answer may well turn out to be several jobs or projects – a portfolio career.

For any of you brave enough to venture out into the elements this weekend, I will be leading a walk to Rottingdean.
This should be a bit different to the usual Rottingdean walk, although some aspects of the walk will be the same. e.g. we walk to Rottingdean and come back again!
If you are not doing your Christmas shopping this Sunday and you are curious to see the difference, why not come and join us at The Level at 10am.

PLEASE NOTE This walk is not linear as described in the programme its circular, starting from and returning to Polegate Stn.
Should anyone wish to make it linear by dropping out in East Dean, 7 miles into the walk at lunch time. That would be fine, provided the leader is clearly told.
Having now run the cotton over the route for Sunday im afraid it is nearer to 12 miles than 10. This being the case im afraid in these days of deminishing light, the lunch stop in East Dean will probably need to be reduced to 30mins. This provides plenty of time for either a picnic lunch, food in the hikers cafe…Continue
