FOOTPATHS GROUP: Walk Report for February 10. The scheduled walk round Buxted turned out to be far too muddy for the delicate soles of the walking group so we took ourselves to the Downs north of Brighton for a fairly brief and breezy walk taking in the Chattri on the way. Setting off from the car park just off the A27 twelve of us, led by Hilda and Graham, followed the bridleway that rises very gently to the Chattri where we stopped for the always welcome coffee break. Carrying on we encountered slight muddiness before turning right down a chalky track leading to Lower Standean, a tiny enclave nestling right in the middle of The Downs. From there we followed the road that passes Alpha and Beta Cottages and the rifle range back to our starting point. Bracing but not raining sums up the morning’s activities. The walk was led by Hilda and Graham.
