Lets visit the south coast for a delightful walking and hiking weekend! Travelling light we will take the 10.47am train direct to Cooden Beach near Bexhill having had lunch on the train. We will walk 8 miles along the beaches and coast to Hastings whereupon we will visit the old town and have dinner and then for those who choose see England v Italy World Cup match at 11pm. We will be staying in several guest houses in Hastings. Sunday morning we shall hike 12 miles to Rye which affords wonderful views taking in Winchelsea Beach and Camber Castle. At Rye we shall sightsee and eat some fish and chips before taking the train back to London at 5.45pm. Payment of £55 in respect of return train and accommodation is to be made at one of the 3 day walks that the group is hosting between now and 10th May. My mob no is 07714250849.

    Hi Steven and all, I'm really looking forward to this weekend! I was wondering if this walk is going to be flat as your other walks? (I'm just looking for an excuse to buy hiking sticks :-) )

    Thanks again for setting this up.

    • Steven

      Hi Fatima, the Saturday coastal walk will be essentially flat but the Sunday walk will be hilly for the first half and that is why we are staying in Hastings and not in Rye ! We will all need collectively to have had a breakfast some place and bought our packed lunches, snacks and water before 9.30am on Sunday so as to reach Rye in good time : )

      Cheers Steven. It sounds like I'll need hiking sticks :D

    Hi Steven and Fatima, something has come up and it would be really good if I could drop out of the trip. I know it's short notice but i have notice that Carolin is waiting and was wondering if she could take my place. If not I will still come but it would REALLY help. Thank you.
