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

A lovely mid-week morning walk of about 6.5 miles from Kithurst Hill, starting up on the Downs near to Storrington and Amberley. It should take about 3 hours with two short breaks. Great views over Arundel Castle to the Isle of Wight (subject to weather conditions) as we walk along the back of the downs. We pass the green hummock of Harrow Hill with its giant chalk pit and ancient flint mines. Then it’s north again across pastures to meet the South Down way at the crest of the downland escarpment.

Please wear clothes and boots suitable for the terrain and weather. Bring drinks for the walk and snacks/lunch for a couple of breaks. Dogs are welcome if kept on leads whenever crossing roads, or in areas with livestock, or requested by the walk leader.

BOOKING: Advance booking is required in order to comply with national Covid regulations. The event is of course free of charge. You can book on behalf of others as well as yourself. All attendees must be either full GOC members or have the free trial online membership. If you have difficulty booking then contact the Sussex Group Coordinators at [email protected] to do it for you, or you can contact the Event Organiser using the message box below. Thank you!

During the walk attendees are asked to follow social distancing rules at all times and respect that others may have different sensitivities to personal safety.
