Bank Holiday Monday walk - Seven Sisters coastal walk

T=2.28 Book 2, Walk 28, Seaford to Eastbourne 
Length: 13.8 miles 
( with drop out points at Exceat 3.9 miles, Birling Gap 8 miles, and Beachy Head 10.7 miles, buses will come along every 10 minutes or so to pick you up at each drop out point.) [The bus from Burling Gap goes at 16 and 46 past the hour until 6pm.]

 9.46 train from Victoria, calling at Clapham Junction 9.51, and East Croydon 10.01, to Seaford, changing at Lewes 10.50/10.58, arrive Seaford 11.14.

Trains back from Eastbourne, are direct at X31, or X47, X58, or X04 with a change.

Train tickets? Walk notes don't seem to say. I know Eastbourne has a barrier so possibly a via all routes return to there.

The second of our two "pick your own" bank holiday walks: Anonymous, who has picked this walk, says: Two of us are doing the Seven Sisters on Monday so it would be great if some other SWCers could be tempted out for a dramatic coastal walk after a week of rain and while the Birling Gap bus is still running.

Lunch is at the Cuckmere Inn (formerly the Golden Galleon) at Exceat or the Saltmarsh Cafe at the Exceat visitor centre. Tea at Birling Gap NT cafe.

so I hear from people on the wednesday walk. some regular walkers and bloggers, yet no walk number blog comment, as 'it is all too complicated these days'.

Well there were 6 of us on this somewhat strenuous Bank HOLIDAY
walk. we were fortunate that the rain held off but it was very muddy in the cuckmere valley.Several people had lunch at the Cuckmere Inn but the food was somewhat indifferent.
One was certainly aware that one had had some exercise at the end of the day.jfk
