Overview

Rescheduled from 21st January

We will walk from Glynde up onto the Downs at Beddingham radio masts and then along the tops taking in the views to the North and South to the sea before dropping down to Alfriston for a well earned picnic or light pub snacks. We will walk on towards Berwick Station stopping to admire the recently refurbished Long Man, and then catch the train back to Glynde.

There will be two sharp ascents, onto the Downs and then up to the Long Man,

The walk to Alfriston and as far as Wilmington is on all weather paths or chalk downland and therefore  dry underfoot.  The path along the Weald Way thereafter may be muddy,.

Please do not buy your train ticket until we have reached Alfriston in case of a change of plans.
