Gentle woods in the morning and a climb to Black Down in the afternoon
Time Out walk 22 from book 1
Difficulty: 4 out of 10
We will meet at 9.15am in Waterloo station under the huge clock in the centre of the station.
The route goes through very beautiful countryside. It is mainly National Trust land - mixed woods with blackberries and bluebells and forests of pine trees.
Lunch stop in the quaint Fernhurst village. Please bring a packed lunch. You can either eat on the village green or in the back garden of the Red Lion (you will need to buy a drink).
In the afternoon, we will climb to Black Down, the highest point in the historic county of Sussex (280m). From the top we will enjoy outstretching views towards the south downs.
After the walk, we will head to the White Horse Hotel for drinks and food. Trains back to London are at 18 and 49 past the hour from platform 2 or 3 (over the footbridge). The station is 10 minutes walk away from the pub.
We will travel using group save tickets. I will count how many people there are at 9.20am and will buy tickets accordingly. You will need to pay me £15 on the train so please bring cash. This includes the cost of the train and a contribution to the club.
The walk will go ahead regardless of the weather conditions, so please come prepared, bring your waterproofs and wear ankle supporting shoes.
