Sunday 20th November 40/50 walk PLEASE NOTE


PLEASE  NOTE   This walk is not linear as described in the programme its circular, starting from and returning to Polegate Stn.

Should anyone wish to make it linear by dropping  out in East Dean, 7 miles into the walk at lunch time.  That would be fine,  provided the leader is clearly told.
