Walking

The Walking Group is a friendly mixed group of men and women.

"After a day's walk everything has twice its usual value". G. M. Trevelyan

HOW WE WALK - please note:

  • Wear footwear and clothing appropriate to the weather and time of year
  • Bring water with you to avoid dehydration, especially in hot weather
  • Be responsible for your own safety particularly when crossing roads/railways
  • Look out for other walkers
  • Keep together as a group
  • Close gates behind you
  • Bring a torch/hi-vis clothing if walking outside daylight hours
  • Be respectful of farmers and other members of the public
  • Dog owners are responsible for their dog, and for putting it on a lead where there are farm animals and when crossing roads/railways

 

WHERE WE WALK

On the 3rd Saturday of the month starting at 14.00 we have a short relaxing ramble of 4-6 miles after lunch

On the 1st Sunday of the month starting at 11.00 we have a longer walk of 7-9 miles - but still not too strenuous - often followed by a pub lunch. Occasionally the Sunday walks will be longer, around 12miles, to satisfy those who like a serious work out.

On the 2nd and 4th Fridays from May to September there are walks starting at 18.00 or 18.30 which are a great way to unwind from the weekly grind. They normally last about 2 hours and usually conclude with a meal at a pub or restaurant.

From October to May we also have a monthly midweek morning walk followed by a pub lunch.

Friday, 9th June. 4 miles from Hassocks

Terry will lead this lovely evening ramble around Hassocks.

We meet at the west entrance to Hassocks station at 18.15.  The 18.05 Thameslink train from Brighton arrives at 18.15.
 
The first half mile is along a road but after that is through fields and woodland.  There’s a moderate climb at Wellcombe Bottom!  I’m not making it up.
 
There is a very friendly little cafe close to the station called The Purple Carrot.  It’s licensed but doesn’t have draught beers.   Walkers will have the choice of eating there at the end of the walk or alternatively the walk passes the Jack and Jill pub about a mile from the end, and we could stop there instead if people need a conventional pub.
 
Please sign up below to join us on this sociable and relaxing end to the week.
