Viewing events from April, 2016
Jeff's walk in the Cissbury Ring area, around 8 miles. Views to the Isle of Wight, Brighton and even Beachey Head are possible on a clear day. The site was an area of flint mining from the late Stone Age until the early Iron Age, the hill fort not being constructed until the middle Iron Age. Rumour has it the devil originally threw clods of earth which formed the Cissbury Ring as he tried to flood the Weald with water from the Channel. That must have been well before he was chased into the Devils Punch Bowl at Hindhead.
Tim and Jane's walk from Up Marden Church. SU795 142. About 7.1/2 miles, lunch in the Hare and Hounds,Stoughton.
Mary and Barbara's walk near Milland, with lunch in The Rising Sun. Parking at OS grid reference SU 822 263 near New Barn Farm and the walk heads north towards the ancient Maysleith Woods
Den's walk is from Cheriton to Tichborne, lunch probably in The Tichborne Arms. Thanks to www.battleofcheriton.co.uk for the excellent photo.
