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…Continue

We have been notified of the following scheme:
I am starting to promote a new Volunteer Path Warden scheme in Brighton & Hove – whereby regular users of the Public Rights of Way network can ‘adopt’ a path(s) that they use regularly – to help keep an eye on them.
I’m wondering if this is something you might be able to advertise with your local membership? I’ve…Continue

The Hope Inn is available otherwise please bring a picnic. We return to Telscombe along the cliff top path. I…Continue

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…Continue

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!

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.

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…Continue

If you're already a walk leader or thinking about becoming one please take a look at the OS National Map Reading Week website (https://goo.gl/Ga6CCM) which has loads of useful info on map reading, how to use a compass, hints and tips, events and much more.
