FOOTPATHS GROUP: Lancing Hill, Sunday January 27. The morning was overcast and blustery when nine walkers left the Lancing Ring Nature Reserve car park for a four and a quarter mile walk, led by Anita. It started with a long steady, uphill climb on a very well-walked and muddy path. This made the walking more difficult than some may have hoped for. By the time we reached the summit, the sky brightened, giving us distant views towards the Rampion Wind Farm. Turning right towards Coombe Head the path improved. What a joy to be able to walk on the green and grassy Downs. Continuing to battle with the blustery wind, we arrived at Coombehead Wood. This provided welcome shelter from the wind and proved an ideal spot for our morning break. We basked in glorious sunshine, admiring the spectacular Lancing College and wondering what the future holds for the Shoreham Cement Works. Suitably refreshed, we headed down to Cow Bottom, passing Cowbottom Hovel, originally an open shelter for cattle. Then we took the steeply sloping, and relatively short uphill climb to the top for the final stretch, up Lancing Hill and back to the car park.
