East Dean Circular Walk - Saturday 27 October

The forecast is sunshine for tomorrow!  However, the northerly wind will be strong so if you are coming please have warm clothing as part of the walk is quite exposed.  Some respite in the pub in Eastbourne; probably best to come in the pub for lunch or coffee. Hope to see you in East Dean.

Dear All


Thank you for being good hill walkers!  I have just checked with my trusty bit of measuring string and the walk was actually 13 miles so it goes to show you can't believe what books always tell you!!

20s - 40s - Slightly Shortened Three Hills Challenge - Sunday 21st Oct

Dear All


This walk will be about 10 miles now but still a few hills - worth it for the views and if we are lucky trainee paragliders who were very entertaining the other week.


Train from Brighton Station @ 10.09am (I shall be at the station from 9.50 am on the seats nearest the photo booth.  I can get a few people cheaper train tickets but the terms of the rail discount mean you will have to travel with me there and back I'm afraid), arriving Lewes @ 10.25 for…

Local path under threat!!

A request to all Ramblers from B & H Footpath Secretary

To prevent this loss of access, it is essential to claim a DMMO (Definitive Map Making Order). If you or anyone you know has used the path over a period of 20 years, please contact me. The path provides access from Cliff Road / Approach to the bus…

PLEASE READ: 40-50s walks - please...

Hi all,


I've only had one offer of a walk for the next programme (thanks Chris) - so everything Nick says re 20/40s walks applies equally here. Without walkers volunteering to lead you simply won't have a programme of Sunday walks.  So please do your part and send me a walk, and encourage everyone you know to do the same. Full details are in the original announcement posted 20 Sept.


Thank you

PLEASE HELP US BY LEADING A WALK. If you’re not sure here are a few things that may help:

-  There are many routes published in books/internet. Alternatively other walkers…
