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…

Sunday 11 Feb - Patcham - Plumpton circular

Hello.

Due to very muddy conditions around Ditchling I have modified the route to avoid Ditchling and make The Half Moon at Plumpton our lunchtime stop. Distance is now 12 rather than 11 miles. All other details remain unchanged but please check beforehand.

Hope to see you on Sunday!

Cheers,

Stuart

Saturday 20th January - Lewes Circular via Mount Harry and Offham Hill

Go for a walk rather than shopping or doing the housework! I did the pre-walk last Sunday and the going underfoot was nice and dry so expecting the same on Saturday. Some glorious views over the Downs from the old Lewes race course, Blackcap and Mount Harry. Forecast is reasonable but there could be the odd shower so come prepared. Drink and/or lunch in The Swan which is a Harveys pub for those who care about such things! Hope to see you there.

Sunday 26th November: Shoreham - Bramber circular 12 miles

The days are getting shorter (sunset @ 1602) and this is quite a long walk so please try and bring a picnic lunch so we can keep the lunch-stop to around 40 minutes. There's plenty of seating available at the car park...and even a WC! I did a pre walk yesterday and the ground is nice and firm even along the riverside footpath. Weather forecast is cold but sunny…
