Lewes Footpath Group: A group of 14 walkers set out from the picturesque village of Bramber on August 6, cutting across a field to reach the bank of the Adur. Shortly after reaching the river, we crossed it on the footbridge and continued northwards on the east bank of the river with views of the river on the left and the Downs on the right. Many swans were patrolling along the river - including one family with a group of four cygnets. After about two and a half miles, we reached a bridge over the river, which used to be for the railway line from Horsham to Steyning. It is now is a bridleway for the Downs Link - a walkway joining the North and South Downs.

After a welcome coffee break, we returned along the Downs Link, passing through maize fields full of succulent corn cobs and wheat fields ready to be harvested with views of Chanctonbury Ring in the distance. Somewhat less idyllically rural, as we walked along the lane approaching Bramber, was the local sewage farm, which assaulted our senses. The weather was sunny with a breeze and ideal for the walk, which was led by Alan.

Our next walk will be on Tuesday 29th August. Meet at 16.40 at North Street car park. It is an evening walk with supper around and about Lewes. Anyone is welcome to join us.
