London Walk Saturday 22nd July

There is an alteration to the train time to London Bridge on Saturday.

The train for London Bridge leaves Brighton Station at 9.32 .  This does not call at Preston Park as originally noted, so anyone who hoped to board at Preston Park will now have to go to Brighton Station.

It is not strictly necessary to purchase a Travel Card if returning by Thames Clipper, but the card allows a third off the price, and has the flexibility of returning from Greenwich by the DLR if…

Thursday Walk 17th July Bolney Circular

This Thursday's walk will be just under 6 miles and will be a mix of woodland, fields and quiet country lanes.  There were some awkward muddy patches in places when I checked last weekend so boots are advised.

If you are unable to park at or near the car park ( just beyond the pub), there should be plenty of room further up the main street.

London Walk Saturday 31st May

Newick Circular Thursday 6th September

This Thursday the walk will start at the Royal Oak pub, Newick and not at the church, as there is only enough parking for 3 or 4 cars in the lane leading to the church.  It is easier to park near the Royal Oak where Church Road becomes wider.  Grid reference TQ419212.  We shall be walking along Church Road at the start.

If problems with parking, please ring me on the day tel 07879832480.

Isle of Wight Walk tomorrow ( Saturday 14th July)

Due to the forecast of heavy showers throughout the day on the island, this walk has been postponed until Saturday August 25th.  The walk is fairly exposed with no tree cover, so a fine day is needed to justify the train and ferry cost.  The public programme on the website is being amended to show the change, and I shall be at Brighton Station tomorrow morning to cancel the walk.
