Wonderful family adventure weekend in Alfriston

JOIN SUSSEX Wildlife Trust for a wonderful weekend of walking, rock pooling and camp fire cooking in Alfriston, September 24 and 25.

The adventure begins with a walk from Alfriston Youth Hostel along the ridge of the South Downs Way, enjoying a bird’s-eye view of the white horse at Litlington.

Walkers will then follow a route through Friston Forest dressed in autumn colours to the Seven Sisters Country Park near Eastbourne.

A walk down the Cuckmere river valley leads to the magnificent Seven Sisters and the afternoon is spent rock pooling on the beach within sight of the towering white cliffs.

The return walk to the Youth Hostel follows the Cuckmere River upstream. In the evening expect a visit from a bygone, local smuggler and a treasure hunt.

Sunday is spent in Friston Forest with lots of fun activities in the woodland for the whole family and lunch cooked on a camp fire.

Please bring a packed lunch for Saturday, all other food is provided. This is a family event suitable for children aged ten and above. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
