General Notes
After a trespasser on the line prevented us doing the full intended route last year a second attempt will be made to do the full planned circuit, with a different start point to try and avoid getting wet feet in the first few miles! As its a longer than normal walk pace will be necessarily brisk. Please bring sufficient sustenance for most of the day as the only place to top up will be Birling Gap
