FOOTPATHS GROUP: The group’s annual coach trip on Wednesday July 31 attracted 21 participants and this year they went to Ightham Mote. As the property had recently suffered flash flooding of its ground floor some rooms were not open and they were still being cleaned and dried out. However this did not spoil the party enjoying the property or its delightful grounds. After most participants had sampled the delights of the Mote Restaurant and watched the many birds there, Robert Cheesman lead a short walk of some two and a half miles through the woods to the west of the property. This culminated at a spectacular viewpoint over the weald to the south near Wilmot Hill. Fortunately the threatened rain in the afternoon missed Ightham Mote and the few spots received did not detract from the walk after which many had a cup of tea before the coach returned to Lewes.
Our next walk around North Lancing is on Sunday. It is 5 miles long and described as undulating with one hill. Meet by 9.30am at North Street car park. Lifts are available and all are welcome. For more information visit www.lewesfootpathsgroup.org.uk
