A varied 12½ mile walk through the attractive Wealden landscape on the East Sussex and Kent border. Exploring the path by the northern shore of Bewl Water is a particular highlight. Expect to climb a number of stiles and the odd fence along the way. Care will need to be taken crossing the busy A21 and walking down the lane at the main entrance to the reservoir.
We begin from the public car park next to the Greyhound Inn at the end of the High Street in Wadhurst. I shall be meeting everyone at the start, and the aim is to set off promptly at 10.30am.
Please bring cars to south end of Preston Park (near to the Rose Garden) for a 9.15am departure if you are driving from Brighton. Some members may need lifts, and we do not want anybody to have to be left behind. The journey should take around 1 hour. It would be really helpful if any car owners able to offer transport to other people could add a comment here to that effect.
We will be having lunch in Lamberhurst, where a table at the Chequers has been provisionally booked. However, I do need to confirm numbers before 10.45am on the day. Alternatively, you can of course bring along your own picnic lunch to have on the village common, which can be found a further 10 minutes walk along the road. I suggest that you bring a sheet to sit on as the ground will probably be damp. Ideally, our stop there will be for less than 75 minutes.
I hope that some of you will be able to join me for the walk, and we manage to enjoy at some sunshine on Sunday.
