To collect - 1 map left at Sussex Area AGM

Good Afternoon,

I led the walk for Mid Sussex Ramblers at the Sussex Area AGM last Saturday in Hassocks and I was asked by one of the Brighton & Hove walkers if they could take the map so that they could put the walk in the Brighton & Hove programme later on in the year.


I passed the map over but it was left in the hall, so please come forward and I will get it to you, whoever you are!


Either call/text me on 07803 608413 or message me on…

Thanks to all who braved the elements and joined us for the Steyning walk today! Here are few lines from Gerard Manley Hopkins that seem apt....

....'What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and of wildness? Let them be
O let them be left, wildness and wet;
Long live the weeds and the
wilderness yet.' (from Inversnaid)

Patcham Windmill Walk: Thursday 23 January

Please note that I have taken over leadership of this walk as Maggi is indisposed.  It's quite hilly but some beautiful views compensate.  There's one really muddy stretch towards the end.  Walking poles recommended.   Street parking on Windmill Drive or Mill Rise.

If anyone was thinking of taking the bus, please note that route 27 is temporarily suspended at the top of Westdene, so you should get off at the top of Valley Drive and walk across.

There is livestock on this route.…

East Hoathley circular this Thursday

The sun is forecast for this Thursday, so why not come and join me for a beautiful Low Wealden walk.  It's relatively flat, but it will be muddy, though not water-logged (at least it wasn't on Sunday's pre-walk).  Walking poles are recommended.  The welcoming Kings Head awaits afterwards.

Call for 20s-40s walk programme March-June 2014

If you enjoy walking with the 20s-40s group, please support the group by submitting a walk for the new programme, which runs 1st March – 30th June 2014. We are looking for walks for all 18 Sundays - it would be great to get a full programme. Many of the leaders we have come to rely on are no longer walking with the group, so to ensure that we still have walks each Sunday, it’s no longer a question of should you offer to lead one walk, but can you afford not to ;-) Any…

Rain or shine we will get to Glynde this Sunday Jan 5th

I will be at the front of Lewes Station at 11.00 Sunday morning and whatever the weather we will make it to Glynde and the Trevor Arms for lunch.
