Claire, Miriam and Pam joined Angela in Lewes, at the leisurely time of 12 as the clocks had just changed, for a 6 mile walk over the Sussex Downs, The weather was very cold, with occasional snowflakes, but the downs lovely as ever. We walked from Lewes, past Kingston village (too early for the pub) then up steeply, through very sticky chalky mud, to grand views from the top over the sea and around. Claire took this pic of us studying the route.
We passed a poor pregnant sheep lying on her side and seemingly struggling, but could find no-one to tell, so cross fingers all went well. Then down to Rottingdean for tea (I had rhubarb crumble) and a bus back to Brighton for the train home. Very well worth going so far as it is stunning – and good to see Angela, very happy in her new home in Hove.
