Restarting Events

Our Groups are up and running with their activities.   While there is generally no fixed maximum number of participants on an event, an event may have a limit in place based on it's risk assessment.   All events still require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

The Ashdown Forest, which occupies a sandy ridge of the High Weald, originated as a royal hunting forest created shortly after the Norman conquest.  The hilly landscape is predominantly heathland, but also includes wild woods, landscaped woodland and deep valleys. This 10 mile walk is designed to show the wide variety of landscapes in the forest including its best features and constantly changing views.

Reviving a recently somewhat neglected GOC Sussex tradition, tea and coffee will be available at the end of the walk. If anyone wishes to bring cakes or other goodies to share that would be most welcome.

Mostly good paths, some ascents (around 200m vertical)
