Cranbrook to Goudhurst circular - My thanks to David for the report and the photos of his walk today. "A fairly familiar route, which I first led in 2004. There were ten people in all, and six miles in the morning to our lunch stop at Goudhurst church, we had good views and ideal weather. I re-routed one section due to nettles. We did a further four miles at a moderate pace to miss the wet weather that was forecast, another enjoyable day rambling in the Kent countryside." 23/07/17



Bodiam To Salehurst circular - The walk started in overcast conditions but finished in very pleasant sunshine. There were fifteen of us in all including a visitor from Ashford and the welcome return of newly-weds Sara and Rob. A most enjoyable walk that was concluded by some in the Castle tea rooms and some in the pub. Thanks Carol. 25/07/17



Brede High Wood and Brede circular - Not the best summer evening for a walk, but just the same it seemed to be much enjoyed. We started with twelve and finished with fourteen, Ian and Annie got held up in traffic and managed to catch up with us before the pub stop. So it was that fourteen soggy Ramblers and two dogs crammed themselves into the small area at the Red Lion reserved for drinkers! It had stopped raining just before we reached the pub and continued dry overhead to the the finish. 26/07/17



Little Horsted - Isfield circular. - Eleven people decided to take the risk today and see if the weather forecast would prove accurate. It wasn't too far off the mark as it happens. We stayed dry until coffee break, there was light drizzle up until and including lunch and then the rain gradually increased in intensity until the end. By which time we were all quite well soaked. A real shame because it was a nice walk and we ventured on a few paths I don't think I had been on before. 02/08/17



Rotherfield - Saxonbury Hill circular. - There were 11 of us on today's walk, which was one of a number of firsts. To my knowledge this was the first time we had started a walk from Rotherfield. This was my first time on a significant number of the paths walked. This was the first time I, and I think the group, had been up close to Saxonbury Tower. This was the first time we had shared a route with the 'Eastbourne & District Motorcycle Club', all of whom were most courteous and considerate of ourselves. This was the first time that a picnic lunch was taken at the end of a walk, rather than in the middle. Having said all of that it remains to add that it was a very good walk in ideal walking conditions, thanks Tim. 06/08/17



Lamberhurst - Kilndown - Bewl Water - My thanks to David for providing the report and photos of Carol's walk today. "A circular walk of ten miles, with nine Ramblers in total, who all came prepared for rain? But it proved to be a perfect day. Carol led us through some lovely countryside in Sussex and Kent, and there were lots of fungi and butterflys to add more interest to an enjoyable walk. Elevenses were taken at Kildown Pond, and lunch near Bewl Water, and at the end five of us retired to the pub. 08/08/17



Stonegate - Burwash circular - There was an air of smugness surrounding the seven people who completed the final evening walk of the 'summer'. Despite the dire, and varied, prognostications of weather forecasters the walk was completed almost entirely in the dry! It was probably just as well there were not more of us however, as dry spots on the benches in the pub garden were at a premium. So there we go, no more evening walks in 2017, we look forward to May 2018 and starting again, hopefully in the sunshine.   15/07/17



Circular walk from Mayfield - A magnificent day for walking, sunshine all the way but not too hot. There were 15 of us on Adrian's excellent walk from Mayfield today. A lot of fresh paths for all, I think about 80% was new ground to me, which made all the more interesting. Some really great views as well. There were a lot of ups and downs, but that's what you get from Mayfield. Well done Adrian. 13/08/17
