Walk Report

The Southern Wealdway, Saturday 4th October 2008
15 walkers, 20 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
15 people came on the walk including 1 new member, 2 from Sussex group and 2 from Surrey group. Morning was fine but afternoon was blustery rain. We went down the Wealdway to Chiddingly and back on the Vanguard way. We hurried back as the weather seemed to be getting worse. There is only 1 train an hour and we decided to aim for the 4:34 return train. To be sure of catching it we went to Buxted which is 1 stop up the line from Uckfield. However the 6 people from other groups had come by cars which were parked at Uckfield. So for the last 2 miles the group split and they returned separately. They all said they were happy to do this, they knew the way and they are all experienced walkers whom I know.
