Today’s walk, “Storrington to Amberley and back”, was led by Sarah, and was an enjoyable circular in the Storrington and Amberley area. The first half of the walk saw a steep climb up onto the downs, but the rest of the walk was easier. The weather was good but it was very muddy. As the two pubs on the route are currently closed, we had a picnic lunch instead (with the option of visiting a local tea room).
Many thanks to Sarah for running the walk. If you attended and would like to comment, feel free to do so.
The second walk in January, “Wisborough Green Circular”, was a circular taking the group to the Onslow Arms, Loxwood and back again. It was muddy under foot but fortunately the weather was otherwise good. The group enjoyed traditional pub fare for lunch as the Onslow Arms.

The New Year got off to a great start with an excellent turn out for Steve D’s walk “Ditchling Common Country Park”. This was a 6 mile circular starting from/ending at the Ditchling Common Country Park car park to the east of Burgess Hill. The weather was good although it was muddy under foot. We have an enjoyable lunch at the Cock Inn in Wivelsfield Green.

Today’s walk, “Firle Beacon/Glynde” was the last one for the group before Christmas. Led by Sarah, there was an excellent turnout. We started at 10 am, earlier than usual, in order to make sure we got back before dark. Unfortunately, delays at our lunch stop meant that we left the pub at 3 pm, and so the light was not exactly good as we finished the walk! None the less, it was an enjoyable walk and the pub lunch was good.

Today’s walk saw Steve D return to lead an enjoyable walk, the “Staplefield Circular”. It was a circular walk with Balcombe Station car park as the start/end point. Although muddy under foot, the weather was otherwise good, so it was an enjoyable walk through the woods and fields in the area. We had lunch at the Victory Inn in Staplefield, which was excellent.
