FOOTPATHS GROUP: Last Wednesday the Lewes Footpaths Group walk began in Wilmington. Passing through Wilmington churchyard under the branches of its ancient yew tree and past clumps of snowdrops among the headstones, our group of 21 walkers headed towards Alfriston across the fields, finding the path very muddy. We reached the banks of the Cuckmere at Long Bridge and followed the river as far as Alfriston, where a pair of swans in the flooded meadow made the perfect foreground for a view of its fine church, the ‘cathedral of the South Downs’. After a short section of road we turned left onto the track that would take us to Wilmington Hill. A steady but not too steep climb was broken for a brief coffee stop and a chance to admire the views. Eventually our path intersected the South Downs Way and from there we zigzagged downhill to end up at the foot of the Long Man. Earlier sunshine was giving way to thicker cloud as we returned to the car park.

The next walk is on Tuesday, Chailey Common. Meet at top North Street car park at 9.30am. New walkers are always very welcome.
