FOOTPATHS GROUP: Eleven walkers had a pleasant four and a half mile walk from Newick to Little Horsted on Wednesday March 8. The 9.30am Compass bus 121 took us from Lewes bus station to Newick. At Newick we walked along Church Road to St Mary’s church where our footpath went through the churchyard leading to open country. We followed well trodden and clearly signed footpaths throughout our walk. Soon we could see the River Ouse and its flood plain below us. We crossed the lane from Piltdown and dropped down to the Ouse which we crossed on a well made footbridge. At our mid way point we came to a cascading water feature on a stream feeding the Ouse where we took a refreshment break. During our break we were entertained by a Chinook helicopter hovering near us. Enjoying the impressive sound from its twin rotor blades we decided it was on a training exercise. We crossed the lane to Isfield, crossed the River Uck on another fine footbridge and crossed the track bed of the disused Isfield to Uckfield railway. We had to make way for several cars and an articulated lorry on the narrow lane to Little Horsted. Nearing the A26 we were disappointed to miss a Brighton and Hove bus to Lewes but with four buses per hour the next bus came in 10 minutes and got us back to Lewes by 1.30pm. The walk was led by Dave.
Our next walk is on Tuesday. It is a four mile brief tour of Brighton with some hills. Meet in good time at Lewes Railway Station to catch the 9.44am train to Brighton. There will be a cafe stop. Anyone is welcome to join us.
