*Sussex Regional Rambles

Disabled Ramblers regional ramble – Washington, West Sussex to Thakeham via the White Lion pub – Monday 22nd July 2019.

This is a very varied circular ramble from our member, Roger’s, house in Washington to the pretty little village of Thakeham where we can quench our thirst at the White Lion pub and have lunch.  It takes us through tracks, footpaths, byeways, quiet country lanes, even along the A24 (on the cycle path) for a little way.  Plenty of views over the lovely Sussex countryside. 

It is a circular route of approx 6 miles and for most of the way is a Cat 2+ the last little section of approx quarter of a mile is a steep downhill slope and needs care, so this part is a Cat 3.

Please note:  we are invited to have coffee in our member’s beautiful garden before departing and on return Roger and his wife, Gina, have very kindly offered to prepare us a cream tea.  So, what a super ramble – coffee, pub, cream tea!!! (and countryside)

There is a £3 donation requested for each ramble, but more is gratefully accepted!  This helps DR with the expenses involved in planning and holding a ramble.

To attend either ramble, please contact Paula


Disabled Ramblers regional ramble – Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, East Sussex – Monday 5th August 2019

Do join us for this spectacular trip to Rye Harbour Nature Reserve on the outskirts of this historic town.  It is an area of some 1149 acres managed by Sussex Wildlife Trust, and comprises of areas of shingle ridges, saltmarsh, lagoons and farmland which give shelter to some 4355 species of wildlife including more than 300 that are considered endangered in the UK.  There are 5 bird hides with excellent views of the lagoons with many species of waterfowl and seabirds.  On our reccy we saw, or heard, over 60 species of birds.  Wildflowers are beautiful and abundant.  En route we pass over fields to view Camber Castle built by King Henry VIII to give shelter to the English fleet, it was then located overlooking the sea on a shingle spit between Winchelsea & Rye.  There are loos at start and finish, a small cafe and two pubs within easy reach of the car park. 

It is a circular Cat 2 of approx 6 miles.  

We will be accompanied on the day by the Ranger, James, who is a mine of information and enthusiasm. Binoculars recommended – there are 5 pairs available if required from SWT – please let me know if you want a pair.

We would like to give a donation to the Wildlife Trust at the end of the day, so a collection will be made at some point.
