FOOTPATHS GROUP: Summer Solstice Stroll report. The purpose of the stroll on the longest day of the year was to watch the sun go down. This was accomplished by eleven of us at The Green Man in Ringmer. The preceding stroll was across the fields from Clayhill House on the A26. Along the way we encountered a pair of horses that were supremely indifferent to our presence and another horse that was jumping around, galloping about and generally showing off in an attempt, as far as we could see, to attract the attention of a second horse in another field which appeared to be wholly unimpressed by the display. The sunset itself was perfect and properly red though one of our members did point out that the sun that we thought we were looking at was in reality twenty degrees below the horizon. With that and other profound thoughts in mind we caught the five past ten bus back to Lewes. Hilda and Graham thought up this wizard wheeze.

Our next 5.5 mile walk is on Sunday. It is an Archaeological Saunter at Truleigh Hill and beyond with stops along the way for interesting talks. Picnic finish 14.30 hours. We leave North Street car park promptly at 9.30am. Do join us.
