Hassocks to Falmer, 30 March

Published by Morley Ramblers on

This walk will now start from Hassocks and end in Falmer. We will go via Clayton Church,  steeply up onto the Downs past the Jack and Jill Windmills,  We then walk on the South Downs Way to Ditchling Beacon where we will stop for a quick alfresco lunch and possible ice cream. We then walk to Stanmer Village in time for afternoon tea and a possible walk round the nature reserve and the village before walking across fields to Falmer Station for our journey home. The walk is no more than nine miles. There are no stiles.
Please note there are toilet facilities at Hassocks and Stanmer but not in between. Bring a packed lunch. A stick will be helpful but the walk has been redesigned to minimise mud.
A drop out at Ditchling Beacon would be possible by catching the hourly bus to Brighton.
