Walk: Seagull Trail Part 4 Nutfield to Crawley Down (11 miles)
Saturday 15th April @ 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
This approximately 11 mile walk will be from N U T F I E L D RAIL STATION to Crawley Down (NOT near Crawley!), Sussex and will bring us halfway to Brighton.
Fairly undulating country along paths and tracks, and some lanes. We go via Outwood with its windmill and head further south under the flight path into or out of Gatwick. We may have an early drink at a pub at Outwood (The Bell, I believe) and/or find a bench for sandwiches, as there are no more such facilities or good places to picnic before the end, unless we just sit in a field, as we do sometimes.
We return by a bus (272, 282, or 291) from either the War Memorial or Burleigh Way at Crawley Down (depending on timing). Buses go to Three Bridges from where we catch a train to East Croydon. Buses also go the other way to East Grinstead, and that will mean getting a single train ticket from East Grinstead to East Croydon.
Logistics: Meet at East Croydon from 9.15am to catch the 9.37am Three Bridges train GETTING OFF at Redhill, changing there onto the Tonbridge train at 10.09 (under subway), getting off at the first stop at Nutfield at 10.14am.
Best to buy a day return to Three Bridges (to return from that station) and buy a single ticket from Redhill to Nutfield (buy this single ticket when you buy your ticket at East Croydon please so there’s no need to buy it at Redhill, otherwise you can probably pay on the train if need be). The change period at Redhill is possibly/likely not long enough to buy a ticket there.
