30 July, 2020 All day Walk
Distance 12 Miles
This walk is a modified version of the old Whiteways walk with its new start location. The walk starts off with a steady climb up onto the downs, through a mixture of farmland and woodland. We walk along a section of Stane Street the old Roman Road which is still in good condition! The walk then takes in lovely chalk downland and deserted valleys before joining part of the South Downs Way with stunning views as we return to the pub.
As the Covid 19 pandemic restrictions are gradually lifted and we look forward to salvaging what we can of the 2020 walks programme. We are planning to get the walks going in July in a modified version. To accommodate this we have modified the July walks programme. The dates for walks after July may also be reviewed, but at present no changes to the original programme dates have been made.
The current Government regulations allow six of us to meet up and walk as long as we maintain social distancing guidelines. Our plan is to try and get several of these groups of six (or pods) doing the walks, each pod being led by a pod leader and setting off at slightly different times so that the pods maintain a respectable distance between each other. Hopefully we will be able to have 2 or 3 pods working on each walk, so we will be able to do each walk with a reasonable number of walkers.
At present we are only working on getting the July walks up and running. As demand is likely to exceed the number of available spaces, we are going to operate a booking system. Do NOT turn up on the day hoping to walk as you will not be able to walk with us – we cannot and will not walk as a group of 7 or more (unless of course Government advice changes).
