Walk Report

Walk to Arundel, Saturday 16th June 2012
11 walkers, 24 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
A cool blustery day but 11 of us braved the strong winds to have a 24 mile circuit of the Downs to the north-west of Arundel. Woodlands and open hillsides (total ascent 3,500 feet), a tiny country churchyard for our picnic lunch and an extra deviation to the lovely village of East Dean for afternoon refreshments. Was it the leader being kind or had he gone wrong in the woods?
Anyway, all was mended with a return on the Monarchs Way and a succession of fine views with the threatening rain staying away to the end.
