Lewes to Ditchling

Distance: 12.1 Miles

The Royal Oak - Barcombe Cross, The Winning Post - Plumpton Green, The Bull Hotel - Ditchling

Walkers: Timmeh, Susi, Ben, Piran, Loreta. (Loz and Kate joined us at The Bull.)

Terrain: Corn fields, wheat fields, river bank, pasture, some woodland.

Weather: Started drizzly and overcast, but quickly turned quite sunny and warm.

Notes: Despite what I said on the last walk, today the food at the Bull was rubbish and overpriced. Beer was excellent though. 12 miles is too long after such a break; need more training for the next "big one"
