The Sussex Border Path - Sections 1 to 3

This ambitious undertaking kicked off on August 19th with a largely coastal walk at the South-Western end of the county. It was a hot summer's day, so it was ideal to be by the seaside and it was the most popular event since the group started in May, with a lot of new people and second-timers as well as regulars - all of them lovely people! The inland part was very attractive as well, but with water supplies running out the pub at the end was a welcome sight.

It was fantastic weather again for the second hike, from Petersfield back to Rowlands Castle, stopping in a very nice pub with a beautiful garden for a really excellent lunch. There were lovely villages along the way as well as woods, hills and great views as we crossed the South Downs. The more usual size group of 19 made excellent time in the afternoon so we all got the earlier train back.

It was even more fantastic weather for the third hike - a bright blue sky all day which gave us the unexpected pleasure of sunning ourselves in a lovely pub garden at the half-way point of the day. Top marks for the efficient lunch service too. There were 19 hikers again but almost a completely different crowd - only the best people of course as always. Oh yes, and the walk itself was a great mixture of open land, wooded glades and forest. We fairly ate up the miles, arriving in good time for the earlier trains home in both directions.
