Three Bridges to Haywards Heath, Saturday 22nd November 2008
19 walkers, 21 miles - leader Sally Adams
19 walkers started happily on a bright and fresh autumn day. We kept a good pace all day long to try to shorten the time we would walk in pitch dark in the evening, as sun sets around 4:30 these days. Lunch was in the magnificent National Trust house Standen where we all enjoyed the building's architecture and the beautiful gardens with lovely views. Just as we were starting after lunch we had the good surprise of a few snow flurries but it didn't last long and sun came back fast, as bright as in the morning. All afternoon the views were fantastic, we passed near two magnificent reservoirs: Weir Wood reservoir and Ardingly reservoir. We stopped for a few minutes in West Hoathly to admire the lovely church, cemetery and surrounding sumptuous views. We watched a gorgeous sunset, and finished the walk with our headlamps, as usual, but spirits were so high after such a great walk that night and mud couldn't darken our moods.
