The Woodlark - Gerard Manley Hopkins - 1918

The Woodlark

Teevo cheevo cheevio chee:  O where, what can tháat be?  Weedio-weedio: there again!  So tiny a trickle of sóng-strain;  And all round not to be found  For brier, bough, furrow, or gréen ground  Before or behind or far or at hand  Either left either right  Anywhere in the súnlight.  Well, after all! Ah but hark—  ‘I am the little wóodlark.  . . . . . . .  To-day the sky is two and two  With white strokes and strains of the blue  . . . . . . .  Round a ring, around a ring…

Just noticed that it says possible pub lunch in "Ringmer"  - that should be "Keymer" (The Greyhound, in fact!)

Sunday's Seaford Circular

Do join me for my walk this coming Sunday. Full of variety, it's starts at Seaford's scenic cliff head. We meander along the river and mosey through picturesque fields full of yellow rapeseed and even a few poppies! Along the way we will pass an interesting new vineyard in Sussex and possibly the oldest church in Sussex. Picnics will taste delicious depending on what you bring but if you're lucky and it's optional, there will be a pub at the end. See you there at Seaford train station at 950am… Continue

Hi All,

Come and join us for a mid week evening walk this Wed 18th.

I hope to see you there!

Wepham Down Circular update

Thank you tons to Julie for reminding me that it is the London to Brighton cycle ride on Sun. I believe she is right that anyone coming by car would be caught up in complicated road closures etc if they went from the Level. Her suggestion of people meeting up (hopefully with several cars) at the King Alfred Leisure Centre on the seafront, 

15 mins south of Hove Train Station, sounds good. Please could you comment here if you are wonderfully helpful…

Wepham Down Walk Sunday 15th June Update

Hope some of you are looking forward to the walk on the 'West -Side'. Cars will be required so please go to the Level with cars if you can for 9.45am. I will meet everyone at 10.30am at the start . Car park is off the A27 dual carriage way into the woods, right turn into Blakehurst at 'Poling Corner' (before you reach the traffic lights/Arundel from Worthing). As road turns sharp left, park on gravel car park or grass verges but don't block gravel track that bears right please.

Summer Evening Walks are here!

Hi All,

We have started the evening walks for this summer now.  Since these walks seem to rely on just one leader, we are requesting other walk leaders to contribute to the evening walks.

The evening walks are usually programmed for mid week (wednesday) evenings and start at 7pm from the south end of Preston Park.  The walks are usually 4-5 miles in length and quite often end at a pub for a drink at the end, although this is not necessary.

If you…

Ditchling Beacon Walk Sunday 8th June

The 79 bus is due to leave the open Market Stop at 10.27, arriving at Ditchling Beacon at 10.42 but due problems at Btn station it is sometimes late but we should be walking by 11am.  I'm keen to get going as I've only been able to reserve 15 places at the Half Moon and the weather looks good so it will be busy but that also means we can sit outside. We should be back at DB to catch the 16.45 but if for any reason we miss it there is a 17.45. There is very little parking and if it's nice…

Small Dole Circular Thursday 5th June 2014

The walk on Thursday starts opposite the Fox pub.  There is unrestricted street parking.  We will walk over to Oreham manor, then towards Edburton.  This is mostly flat.  Then we climb up to Truleigh Hill at individual pace, along the South Downs Way and down below Beeding Hill, past Tottingham Manor and back to Small Dole.  At the moment the weather forecast is quite good and I look forward to seeing you there.
