Afternoon 20-40's walk on Sunday 3rd February

A shorter afternoon walk.  The walk starts at 2pm and, with half an hour or so at the Chattri, we should return by 4.30pm.

Rather unusually there won’t be any pubs or tea shops on this walk – so please bring any food and drink that you want! There will be some mud following the recent weather so be prepared!

We’ll be meeting where the walk starts and finishes. This is near the recreation ground in Patcham (just off Vale Avenue where it does a right angle turn at…

Walking in Southern Spain - cheap rental in typical Spanish village

Just a reminder! Meet at the level at 9.45 to drive to Jack and Jill windmills for start of walk.  It has been incredibly wet and muddy!  Be prepared!

Thursday walk - Postponed, with a cuppa and cake instead!

As the conditions underfoot for tomorrow's walk at Barcombe Cross will be slushy snow, ice and a considerable amount of mud, I have decided to postpone it until the next walk programme.  Walking in these conditions would be difficult and arduous - not much fun!  So, as a last minute alternative, I will be at Preston Park station at 9.30am in the morning as usual and will then walk down through Preston Park to the Rotunda Cafe for a morning cuppa and cake.  If you feel like joining me, I will…

CANCELLATION 20s - 40s Seven Sisters & Friston Forest

Dear all

Although the roads in town are fine, I am not sure about those further out.  As there is more snow forecast tomorow and as I have no wish to see anyone slide down a Seven Sister, off a cliff and into the sea so I am cancelling the walk.

I will run the full version in the next programme.

Keep warm.

Best wishes.

Support for new walk leaders

Would you like to have a go at leading a walk for the 40/50's group. If you would please contact Andrew Farquharson at
As its your first time there would be plenty of support and new ideas for you at the above address.
We can also provide a current leader to come along and give you some support should it be needed. The seven sisters is always a good first one to do as there is very little navigation. There are plenty more easy ones as well.

Cancellation of Ashdown Forest Walk Sunday 20th January

Due to current weather conditions I am sorry to announce that Sunday's (20th Jan) walk is cancelled.  With temperatures not due to rise above freezing and with a layer of snow I think it would be difficult going both driving to the Ashdown Forest and walking/navigating.  I will of course lead this walk later in the year when hopefully many of you will join in an enjoyable ramble through some beautiful scenery.

20s - 40s walk Sunday 20th Jan 13 - 7 Sisters & Friston Forest - small change

Dear all


Just to let you know I have shortened the walk a little on Sunday as I had forgotten how long it takes to get to Friston - it is now about 6.5 - 7 miles and only takes in 4.5 of the sisters but still enough up and down bits to help towards your New Year keep fit resolutions........and a pub lunch afterwards to help you recover. 


The parking is not brilliantly signposted - turn right (assuming you approaching from Brighton) immediately after the pond,…

40 - 50s Walking in the Lakes- Summer 2013


40-50s - Walking In the Lakes - June 2013

I plan to run a walking break in the lakes in June based in Keswick.

Assisted by my brother we are happy to lead walks for 5 days from Thursday 20th to Monday 24th June.  We will offer a list of moderate/ easy to challenging  walks over the five days.  The degree of difficulty is not about distance walked ( all will be relatively short on miles ) but on height gained.  ALL walks in the lakes are weather dependant, if torrential…

Change to this Thursday's walk

Following last week's muddy escapade (thanks, Anthony!), and because the Arun valley at Houghton is still waterlogged, I've decided to vary the route this Thursday. THE START LOCATION REMAINS THE SAME.  But the new 7-mile route will now take in Houghton Forest and Bignor Hill, via Monarch's Way and the SDW. It offers fine forest walking, stunning downland views, and is relatively mud-free (well it was on the pre-walk last weekend!). Hope to see you there.
