Bubble walks on 7th April 2021

This week Celia and Miquel led their bubble walk, starting from Iping Common car park, towards Stedham Common, the Severals,  across the A272 to Woolbeding Bridge, then around Stedham. It was just less than five miles and back to the cars, where we decided it was much to cold to stop for a picnic lunch.

No, let's go that way!

The Severals

Bluebells are starting to bloom - or are they the Spanish variety??

Stedham Hall - has anyone heard the rumour the Hitler hoped to live there, but never quite made it?




Linda and Tim's walk started from Rogate Village Hall and headed South towards Habin.

After crossing the Rother twice the walk reached the church of St Peter, at Terwick.

Undergoing building work,hardly anything was visible of the church but it provided shelter from the cold wind  for our coffee stop.

Then north through the Lupin field to Terwick Common and Fyning Hill

before dropping back down through Fyning Common and back to the car park. About 5 miles.
