Night Hike! Lewes, South Downs, and Starry Skies

Victoria Station

£25.00

PRICE INCLUDES TRAIN TRAVEL. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE YOUR OWN WAY THERE, THE PRICE IS £10.

I have added a second leader for this hike and we'll be splitting the group into two.

Join us for an appreciation for the dark skies of the countryside, and embracing the endless night of dreary January. Beginning our hike in Lewes in the late afternoon, we will head out of town and onto the Downs in time to catch the sunset. We'll explore the thatch of trees on BlackCap- a hill top that was completely denuded of its trees by the hurricane of 1987 (and now crowned by 30+ year old oak trees). From here, we will embark on a classic hike along the South Downs Way, passing by Ditchling Beacon, the pass over the hills well-known to cyclist doing the London to Brighton ride. Most spectacularly, we'll be up on the downs to witness the sun arching low on the horizon and setting at a paltry 16:32 in the afternoon, and finish our hike in the dark. If we are lucky enough to have clear skies, we should be able to see the planets Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn across the night sky, along with a smattering of stars.

You must bring a head torch on this hike. You can pick one up at Poundland or whatever outdoor shop is near you- no excuses! This is for your safety as you need to have your hands free while walking, and my sanity so I can do a headcount in the dark.

GRADE: Beginner/Intermediate 10 mile/16km, 4.5 hours hiking time on good footpaths that can be slick after rain. 350 meters ascent. One big hill climb out of Lewes, then gently undulating for the rest of the day.

COST: £25 inclusive of group tickets , £10 if you want to make your own way to the start of the hike- just change the amount you are paying on the Paypal page.

MEETING TIME: A rather lazy 13:00 Victoria Station. I'll be standing by the Monsoon shop near platform 11 wearing a dayglow yellow shirt.

TRAINS: From Victoria, there is a 13:24 train that gets to Lewes at 14:26, Journey time 1 hour 2 min

HIKE STARTS: 14:30 from Lewes Station shortly after the train arrives

LUNCH: Well, we are starting after lunchtime, but please bring snacks and water and a flask of tea if you have one

WALK FINISHES: Approximately 18:30 Hassocks Station. This is a linear hike.

HIKE LEADER: Sara and Christina

Datchet

£19.00

COST INCLUDES RETURN TRAIN TRAVEL. IF YOU WISH TO MAKE YOUR OWN WAY THERE, THE PRICE IS £10.

This is a lovely and historic circular ramble along the Thames to Runnymede meadow. This beautiful spot on the Thames is where King John grudgingly signed the Magna Carta, a document that limited the power of all the future Kings and Queens of England. From here, we will climb a forested hill and make our way to Windsor Great Park. Meandering through the deer park and ancient oak trees and rolling landscape, we’ll have quite a view of Windsor Castle as we make our way to Windsor Station. Windsor Castle has been home of royals since the 11th century, and the Great Park was the traditional hunting ground that surrounded the castle.

GRADE: Beginner/intermediate 18km/11 miles. Approx 4.5 hrs hiking time on easy paths and park tracks. Some rolling hills but nothing too strenuous, 140m elevation gain.
