Wednesday Walk - Buxted Circular

Length: 16.7 km (10.4 mi)
Ascent/Descent:  298 m
Net Walking Time: ca. 4 hours
Toughness:  4 out of 10 

Take the 10.07 Uckfield train from London Bridge (10.22 East Croydon, 10.36 Oxted), arriving Buxted at 11.16. From Victoria: 09.55 Brighton train (Clapham J 10.02), change East Croydon.
Return trains: xx.37 as well as 18.07  & 19.07 (76 mins).

The last time we walked this on a Wednesday, some daft bugger turned up with a kilt, but then it was Burns' Day, so it is unlikely to happen again...

This is a gentle walk over a mix of fields and woods from a quiet station on the Uckfield Line in East Sussex.
It heads north for lunch at the rural Crow and Gate pub at Poundgate. There are views of the distant South Downs ridge for most of the walk.

Lunch: The Crow and Gate in Poundgate, Crowborough (8.7 km/5.4 mi, food all day).
Tea: The Buxted Inn (open all day) or The White Hart Pub & Steakhouse (open from 18.00).
