Latest Walk: The Bluebell Railway

indexToday’s walk started from Sheffield Park station on the Bluebell Railway. We took the train up to East Grinstead, then walked all the way back. The weather was hot and sunny, but fortunately there was also a breeze, so it was not unbearable. In total the walk was 14 miles, although the terrain was generally flat, and we did not have the problem with mud that we encountered earlier in the year.

Some of the walk took in the Sussex Border Path, which Sussex Area Ramblers has taken responsibility for, in particular the marking of the route. (See here for the official website.) Steve had some complaints about the way some of the marking had been done, so I am sure he will be reporting the matter to Sussex Area!

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

  1. Glad of the 14 miles to push the boundaries of our normal mileage and especially in such a great location. Steam railway was fab. Donkeys near the end were a delight.

  2. Thank you Peter. A very well-planned walk. Enjoyed the steam train and lovely route through some summer meadows. Good to take on the challenge of a longer walk.

  3. Thanks for guiding today Peter, it was a really nice walk going through the woods and on the train and everyone was really good company. See you soon on the next one.
