FOOTPATHS GROUP: On Sunday June 17, 12 members of the Lewes Footpaths Group set out from Nutley to repeat a walk that we had attempted in February but found too muddy to complete. From the Ford’s Green recreation ground we found our way past some large houses to reach the path into Hollybush Wood. We followed the track downhill to a footbridge and then scrambled up through woodland to reach a level path running alongside open fields and on to Woolpack Farm. We turned right into Bell Lane and then left after about 100 metres into a driveway that took us past some immaculate stabling, with a young horse being exercised in the sand school. We went downhill again to another footbridge, thence an undulating route through woodland and across small streams to reach a track to Allin’s Farm. We walked along the margins of a hayfield to find a stile almost hidden in the hedgerow, and stopped on the other side for a well-deserved coffee break. After crossing a couple of fields we were back in woodlands, with glimpses of deer half-hidden in the bracken. Finally we rejoined our original path taking us back to Nutley. The walk was led by Anne.
