Their walks are graded for difficulty (easy to hard), distance ( from 4 to 8 miles) and whether it is hilly or flat. Most walks are circular with a lunch stop at one of Sussex’s taditional Pubs. But some of our walkers prefer to bring their own lunch. Walkers do not need to be super-fit but obviously a reasonable fitness is required.
