Latest Walk: Brightling Circular

Unfortunately, the recent run of good weather ended just before Peter’s “Brightling Circular” walk today, which led to one “fair weather walker” pulling out! However, there was none the less a good turn out, and although it was a little wet and muddy, actually it was not too bad.

The walk took in an area that the group hadn’t really visited for a while. It was therefore nice to be able to revisit some of “Mad Jack’s” follies, such as the “Sugar Loaf”. We also had a nice lunch at the nearby Swan Inn, an old favourite.

Many thanks to Peter for leading an enjoyable walk. If you attended and would like to comment, feel free to do so.

  1. Thank you Peter for leading such a good walk with the follies being points of interest along the way – good idea. Thank you for the lift as well, to and from Robertsbridge.

    Andy…you joked about being related to Jack Fuller – i picked up a book about him in the church and an artist called J.M.W Turner was a friend of his- any relation? Jack is buried under the Pyramid in the churchyard.

    Good write up James
    Thank you.

  2. Steve-not sure if any relation as turner is the most common english name in existence. I do know that one my ancestors was a sheep stealer who they tried to hang twice but failed. First time the rope snapped and second time the trap door failed. The hanging site is on the ditchling road on that tight bend with the pub thats been empty for ages. Near wivelsfield. My sussex ancestory is extensive. Burwash area for walk was very pleasant today. There are more follies to see next time. Thanks peter for researching this mad jack connection.

  3. Thank you Peter for leading a lovely walk. Good to see evidence of spring emerging in the form of bluebells and primroses.
