FOOTPATHS GROUP: On Wednesday May 11, one of the walkers on this four mile stroll from Southease station to Lewes came from Preston. She had not travelled down on the day, of course, but was on holiday in the area and had found the information about the walk on the group’s website. Such is the power of the internet. The rain that had fallen the previous night failed to induce the anticipated mud along the banks of the River Ouse and the whole stroll passed off particularly pleasantly for the nine walkers who took part, ably led by Hilda and Graham.

Our next walk will be on Sunday June 5 when we are meeting at Lewes Railway Station to catch the 9.51am train to Pevensey. You would be very welcome to join us. Bring a picnic with you. For more information visit www.lewesfootpathsgorup.org.uk
