Since 2007 in East Sussex



Oakleafe Sussex Rambling GROUPS; and Nordic Walking GROUPS

Since September 2007 Nigel has been leading walking events from our Base in a beautiful location in East Sussex

In East Sussex we have a wonderfully varied landscape within which to craft our walks.

(Image right :  Wilmington village across fields … in contrasting light)

From the Ashdown Forest in the north (surprisingly different), the Forest ridges running eastwards from there through Rotherfield (woods, and views, Follies and disused railways), south across the Wealden areas (rolling and varied, lush woodlands and streams in profusion); on south through the South Downs (open, rolling, and surprisingly stark in places and remote ~ with  hidden folds) to finish finally with the shingle beaches and cliff paths of the coast.

Through it all are rivers (the Sussex Ouse, the Cuckmere) and to the east the Pevensey and Hooe Levels.

Let us take you there to explore.  Find the “secret places” that we so enjoy, away from the motorists and the visitors car parks.  Enjoy the wildlife available to view, and above all the peace and beauty.  Absorb some of the history of this special land ~ fought over from prehistoric times through the Norman invasion, the Roman occupation, the Battle of Lewes, the Civil War; see the World War Two Ring of Steel defences against invasion along the waterways …; and the effects of centuries of industry shaping and reshaping some areas, naming others and reclaiming others from the sea.

We exercise in the great outdoors :
be it Rambling, or Nordic Walking.
More details about the benefits of Nordic Walking can be seen at our companion website ~ nordic-walking.me.uk.

HEARING via your email-INBOX about our NEXT WALKS : 

Please contact us for details to be emailed to you directly (usually 24 to 36 hours before an event) for the series that you are interested in ~ OR, if you are not already receiving the briefings that you wish.  It is simple to UNSUBSCRIBE from one or all of our Oakleafe database groups that we maintain; and we do not share our address-lists with ANY third parties; or through the Club membership.  

IF you do not regularly at least open your emails, then MailChimp undertakes an occasional “Spring-Clean” to compare the statistics for a given email included in the database ~ those that are not being opened are at risk of removal from the List ~ which is outside of our control.
