Our April walk sees us returning to the South Downs to blow away the cobwebs over an extremely scenic 10-mile route guided by Nick.

  • We’ll be heading further eastwards along Sussex’s white chalk cliff tops to Seven Sisters and the stunning river mouth views at Cuckmere Haven. From there we will traverse wooded trails to Littlington where we’ll stop at the traditional and welcoming Plough & Harrow Pub for lunch. Afterwards we will ease back into our walk along the riverbank before heading cross country towards Berwick, passing through Alfriston, one of Sussex’s prettiest villages, on route. This walk takes in cliff top, countryside and river side trails with some fairly steep climbs that will reward those looking to exercise their legs with some wonderful views; a real smorgasbord of Sussex at its best.

    Some parts of this route are steep if you’re not used to hill walking, we’ll take things steadily but please consider this before joining us. The ground is rugged and can be slippery in parts so please wear sturdy footwear and bring sufficient water and snacks. Full details of the route, where to meet, lunch and train fares can be found by clicking on the details button above. Please let Rob (rob@hullonline.org)  know if you are coming in advance so we can manage things with the pub and if you have any questions in the meantime, please email Nick (operationsdirector@sjp.org.uk)

    The small print

    The group works on the same basis as would a group of friends who go out walking together, inviting others to join them.

    Everyone taking part does so at their own risk. SJP and the walk leaders assume no responsibility for anyone attending any Walking Boots event. They will not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss occurring as a result of any Walking Boots event or in connection with travel to such event, however caused. By joining a walk, you indicate that you accept these conditions.Outdoor activities frequently need specialist equipment (boots, waterproofs, etc) and the group does not provide these. You are responsible for assessing your own risk and the suitability of any equipment used. You may want to alert the walk leader to any medical condition that may affect you during the walk. The walk leader may, at their discretion, encourage you not to join the walk if in their opinion you are ill-equipped for the terrain and weather conditions.

    We usually visit a pub or café for lunch. You are responsible for alerting the eating establishment to any food allergies you may have. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent, grandparent etc or guardian.

    Dogs are usually welcomed on walks. You are encouraged to check with the leader whether the proposed walk is suitable for dogs.
