Saturday First Walk

Book 2 Walk 25 Lewes Circular (Via West Firle)
14.5 miles (23.3Km) at the very most but plenty of options to shorten it
7 out of 10
OS Landranger 198 OS Explorer 122 &123

OS map with route on it here

Get the 09.46 from Victoria ( Clapham Junction 09.53 ) arriving at Lewes at 10.56
Direct trains back from Lewes at XX.52 and several indirect ones
Get a return to Lewes unless that is that you want to start from Glynde

Some of you may want to take the train to Glynde from Lewes at the beginning which cuts 5 Km from the walk and also saves you from doing the steep hill from Lewes to Glynde
Leaving Lewes at 11.09 (probably from Platform 3) arriving Glynde at 11.14 (those who are walking this bit should arrive here around 12.00)

The route passes by the farmers market at Cliffe High St in Lewes which is open from 09.00 to 13.00

This is three walks in one really so there are a couple of alternative endings, best check out the walk directions ( in book 2 )
but you can bail out after 5 Km at Glynde Station,
or at Southease Station after 16.8 Km
or there is
which reduces the walk to 11 miles

According to the updates the Piper stained glass in Firle church is gloriously bright in sunshine 
here is a pic
