Saturday 27th April
Meeting point: Midhurst Tourist Information car park (North Street)
Starting from Midhurst town centre, we will then be walking along the River Rother past Woolbeding and then across Midhurst Common. We will then head down through Cocking and along the South Downs Way towards Graffham and across Graffham Common and finally through West Lavington and back into Midhurst. The plan plan is to stop at the pub in Graffham during the afternoon for a drink. After we have finished the walk, for those who would like to join us we will be heading to Faustino's Tapas Restaurant in Midhurst. Please let me know if you plan to come to the restaurant as I will need to book a table. Please note that you will need to pay for parking in car park which is £1.80 for 7 hours.
Easy Walks are for anyone who does not have a mobility difficulty, a specific health problem or is seriously unfit. Suitable for pushchairs if they can be lifted over occasional obstructions. Comfortable shoes or trainers can be worn.
Leisurely Walks are for reasonably fit people with at least a little country walking experience. May include unsurfaced rural paths.
Moderate Walks are for people with country walking experience and a good level of fitness. May include some steep paths and open country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are highly recommended.
Strenuous Walks are for experienced country walkers with an above average fitness level. May include hills and rought country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are essential. People in doubt about their fitness are advised to contact the walk leader in advance.
Non-members are welcome to join us for 3 "trial" walks before deciding to join us. You don't need to book in advance - just turn up on the day.
All our walks are graded to give you an idea of what each one will be like. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short, easy walk first. It's better to find a walk too easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.
All our walks are led by SYW members. Please follow their instructions, don't walk ahead of them, and let them know if you decide to leave the walk before the end.
