Eastbourne & Lewes walking festival

Colour in nature walk Friday 20 September, 2 – 4pm

On Friday Jacky will be leading one of her Colour in nature walks as part of the Eastbourne and Lewes walking festival.

Starting at her studio in Glynde, walkers will begin by walking through small woods and out into views across the South Downs up to Mount Caburn.

Along the way we will be paying particular attention to the changing colours, textures and sounds.

Parking and other details…

There is free parking available in our village car park, by the cricket pitch which is a 5 minute walk away, there is also limited parking directly outside Jacky’s studio by the church.

Glynde has a train station with direct links to Eastbourne, Lewes, Brighton and London Victoria and London Bridge, aproximately 10 minute walk

The route is approximately 2 miles and is quite steep in places so unfortunately it is not suitable for those in a wheelchair or pushchairs

There are no facilities on the walk so do bring your own water with you (there are Public toilets by the cricket pitch)
