An undulating scenic Autumn walk through the northern area of the Ashdown Forest, including Pooh Sticks Bridge, the memorial to AA Milne, and a section of The High Weald Landscape Trail. Some of the places are featured in the recent film 'Goodbye Christopher Robin'. Choose from pub lunch (contact leaders in advance to reserve a place), picnic, or tea room for refreshments in Hartfield. Please bring cars to Preston Park.
South end of Preston Park, Brighton, near to the Rose Garden. It usually takes around 45 minutes by car from there to the starting point via the A27/A275 route. Kindly ensure that you allow sufficient time for the journey, especially if 'Lintons' is full on arrival and it is then necessary to park in 'Broadstone'. Note that the latter is 8 or 9 minutes away on foot. Leaders will be travelling directly from home.
