Jennifer's walk is from The Royal Oak PO18 9JZ in Hooksway and goes up to Telegraph House to return via Harting Downs back to the pub. The walk is about 4 miles.
Jeff's walk will start from High Meadow in Cocking and will be about 7 miles with lunch in The Unicorn Inn in Heyshott
We have a walk from Greatham of about 5 miles, parking in the layby next to Greatham Church SU773 303 51Deg 4.03' N , 0 Deg 53.86'W. If you arrive early, have a look in the ruins opposite to see the last resting place of Dame Margery Caryll - "a vertuous ladie" who died in 1632, aged 40, possibly after pricking her finger whilst sewing. There are no serious hills, several stiles and plenty of blackberries at the coffee stop. As a bonus later on, there is also a large cherry plum tree laden with edible fruit. Lunch in the Hawkley Arms.
The walk starts at the Archway Tube station and after passing Highgate cemetery (admission £4 if you want to go in) we stop for coffee in Nell Gwyn's old house in Waterlow Park. Next to Highgate Hill and some of London's oldest and finest houses, home to Samuel Coleridge, Francis Bacon and George Michael. We then go down the road to Hampstead Heath and along paths noisy with birdsong to get to Kenwood House for lunch. (Click on "read more" below!)
