FOOTPATHS GROUP: Stanmer Park. The Lewes Footpaths Group walk on Sunday March 24 took place in Stanmer Park. We set off from the parking area near Stanmer Church and turned up the village street, in the company of crowds of other walkers enjoying the spring sunshine. We walked past the café and the picturesque flint and brick cottages, turning right after the final cottage up a moderately steep hillside to a gateway into the woods, leaving the crowds behind. Turning left after a short distance, we followed a broad woodland track along the top of the ridge. Signs of approaching spring were everywhere, with new green showing on hawthorn and sycamore, and clumps of anemones, violets and primroses. We went on steadily to reach High Park Farm, the highest part of the walk. Following the track, we passed through a gateway and continued along a path running parallel to the Ditchling Road. The woodland gave way to two open fields, where we stopped for our coffee break, before entering Upper Lodge Wood. More tracks brought us to a car parking area popular with dog walkers and their badly trained charges, where we struck downhill, eventually passing behind the nurseries and Stanmer House to emerge a short distance from our starting point. The walk was led by Anne.
