Viewing events from January, 2017
Paul's walk will start at the top of Cocking Hill at 9.50am. The walk is mostly downhill and takes us to The Partridge for those who need refreshment. Buses are available to take walkers back to the car park at the top of Cocking Hill. Bus passes recommended where available.
Marian, June, Maddie and Linda's walk will start from the car park and will be about 6 miles. Lunch will be at The Hamilton in Stedham. A guest walker from Finland, Tuula, may well join us - luckily she is already currently in Midhurst!
Jennifer and Jean's walk is from Compton to Bevis's Thumb, up and over the shoulder of Apple Down, on to Up Marden before returning to Compton. The walk is approx 4.3/4 miles and lunch at The Victoria Inn, West Marden. Bevis's Thumb is supposedly the burial site of a Sussex giant who could walk to the Isle of Wight without getting his head wet. On his return he used to wash his dogs at Bosham, which is how the harbour was created. Please note, like many things seen in print nowadays, this may only be a story.....
The walk starts from the Car Park at the top of Cocking Hill and after a meander around the Downs, we end up 4.75 miles later in The Partridge in Singleton. At that point anyone can then catch a bus back to Cocking or Midhurst (don't forget your bus pass!) whilst Day Walkers can complete the course by walking a further 3.5 miles back to Cocking Hill. Looking forward to a splendid start to the year!
