Walk Report

Lewes - Very Hilly, Sunday 12th October 2008
25 walkers, 20 miles - leader Don Bolton
25 people set off on this very hilly walk on a misty Sunday morning. We stopped at the Caburn Fort viewpoint but the morning mist prevented us seeing the great views from this elevated position even though the photos taken here do not make it look too misty. After going through Glynde two of our party left us and the remaining 23 went up the long hill to the SDW. From there down to Denton for lunch at the Flying Fish pub. Lunch took 1 hour 15 minutes and then over the Newhaven bridge and round the nature reserve to Piddinghoe. The final six of our party had become detached and got lost here and it took about 20 minutes to find them.
