Peter Lovett Nature Walk this Tuesday 30th March

The weather forecast for Tuesday is beautiful and the flowers should be too.

Peter has volunteered to lead a leisurely walk to enjoy some bluebells, selfheal, cowslips, violets, celandines, etc., solitary bees and bumblebees, brimstones and the other overwintering butterflies and moths.  No orchid flowers yet although one might find some orchid leaves as rosettes. Migrant birds are here now too: perhaps a wheatear or two…

Paul Hearn

Many of you will be saddened to hear that Paul Hearn died suddenly in October this year. Paul had been a member of Brighton and Hove Ramblers for many years, both leading walks and serving on the committee. He was well known for wearing shorts even in the coldest weather, when the rest of us were wrapped in wind and weatherproof gear! He not only led walks on Thursdays and Saturdays, but led walks for his friends every Monday. We shall remember him particularly in the late spring, when he…

Create your own High Weald Walking Festival!

This announcement is on behalf of the High Weald Walking Festival to help promote this fantastic festival now in its 3rd year. Under 'normal' conditions the walks are guided but this year they have worked phenomenally hard to create self-guided walks in the beautiful Sussex High Weald. You don't have to be a Ramblers member to join so please tell your friends and family about it. Enjoy!



Dear Brighton & Hove…

Further to my tribute to Ben, here's a link to some of his walks featured in the Argus.  What better way of remembering him than enjoying his walks!

Ben Perkins - A Tribute

It is with great sadness that I report the death of Ben Perkins on 6 June, at the age of 86. Sussex has lost arguably its foremost ambassador for walking and rambling in the county. To most local ramblers, Ben was simply “Mr Sussex Walker”.

His love of walking and the Sussex countryside had been with him since childhood. It followed him throughout his working years as a family GP in Patcham, and culminated in even more intensity after his retirement in 1996. Over his lifetime…

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of John Warren. He was 91.

Royal Marsden Cancer Charity Walk - Sunday 29th March

I have been asked by Sussex Rambler magazine to help publicise this event:


On behalf of our Chairman I have organised a charity walk in aid of the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity around the countryside of Hurstpierpoint and Wolstonbury Hill. There is a 3km or a 9km route. This charity is important to our Chairman as they successfully treated his 18 month grand daughter for cancer, she is now a bubbly 10 years old.

Due to the Met Office amber weather warning for rain on Sunday (Storm Dennis), this walk is cancelled.

Saturday 15th Feb Crow and Gate to Uckfield POSTPONED Storm Dennis

Having pre walked this in tricky ground conditions it would seem reckless to attempt it when there are 2 severe weather warnings for wind and rain on Saturday following heavy rain on Thursday and Friday. Sections are also thickly wooded and haven't been checked since Storm Ciara. Apologies but this walk will now take place on Saturday  7th March instead. I will most likely be recceing a walk on Wednesday (weather permitting), if you feel you have missed out on a walk this weekend, let me…
