Walk on the South Downs – 9 miles
Monday 18th April @ 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
From Hassocks to Lewes. A stiff (steep) ascent of Downs near start then undulating. Mostly even underfoot maybe ruts so boots better than shoes.
Train to Hassocks: MEET AT EAST CROYDON AT 9.15 (or earlier if you want to buy from the ticket office window rather than ticket machine; train departs 9:33am). Buy a DAY RETURN TO HASSOCKS.
Return from Lewes (at Lewes station we buy a single to Wivelsfield to re-join the route covered by the return ticket). The combined return and single fares should be £25.40 full fare. Network cards etc could be shared for third off.
Bring PACKED LUNCH and something to sit on (plastic bag / mat) and of course suitable clothing including extra layers (hat, scarf and gloves in case cold wind). Refreshments at Lewes (pub / café) at end of walk before catching train back.
