Exceat to Beachy Head, 19th Aug

Hello fellow Ramblers

As some of you know, I've decided to add a fancy dress twist to my Exceat-Beachy Head walk next Sunday (19th).

There's no specific theme, and you can be as restrained or as crazy as you like, but do get involved and add some element of fun and frippery to your normal walking gear. Charles, for example, has agreed to wear a tutu, so I'm sure you're all as excited about that prospect as I am.

Hope to see you all on the…

Beachy Head 20s-40s circular walk & optional Towner Gallery visit this Sunday (5th August)

Sorry, I seem to be really greedy with leading walks at the moment. After the re-run of my Fulking-Poynings eve walk on Wed night, I'm rather indulgently leading another walk this Sunday, the 20s-40s Beachy Head circular walk. It starts at the car park (by the Pedestrian Crossing) on the Beachy Head Road just East of the Beachy Head Hotel and will be a 6 mile circular.

We will then drive into Eastbourne for a pub/picnic lunch and a visit to the Towner Contemporary Art Gallery for the…
