Cuckfield walk - cars at the Level

I'm going to pick up from the Level tomorrow for the Cuckfield walk if anyone wants a lift. I have room for 3. Thought it would be best to let people know, due to lack of cars at Level recently.

Hastings walk Sunday 24th August


From what i can see there are NO Engineering works on Sunday that will affect the

one hour train journey from Brighton to Hastings.

The walk leader ( me ) will be at Hastings stn at 1030, there will be no one at Brighton Stn at 0920 so please make you own way onto the train.

As it says on the "tin", this is a surprisingly challenging walk and NOT recommended if

this would be one of your first walks.

So if an amble around Cuckfield is not for you, I…
