NOTICE : We now NO LONGER plan separate Surrey Weekend events since the start of 2019.  Surrey members for WEEKEND WALKING have been invited to join our Weekend Rambling Group , which now includes all those from Sussex (West & East) and the west of Kent. This is a single, new Database Group : “WEEKEND RAMBLERS 2019/20”. 

This group will offer some activities in the countryside accessible readily from the Tandridge District and further to the west from Redhill/Reigate, as well as the west of Kent, West Sussex and throughout East Sussex.  Walking events will vary between Saturday afternoons, Sunday afternoons and our regular series of Summer Sunday daywalks.

South Downs Way fingerpost/weymarker
In 2007 our Club base was moved down to a valley in the eastern South Downs


Our WEEKEND AFTERNOON Ramble Series.   

The Scheduled WEEKEND Half-day Events currently are as follows :

  • NEXT : Sunday afternoon 9th June … from Lewes
  • Saturday afternoon 27th July … from East Hoathly

AND for our DAYWALK SERIES ~ the Dates for 2019 are as follows : Our overall PLAN for this year is to start following much of the river in the Rother Valley in East Sussex from Hurst Green near Roberstbridge, eastwards; eventually to reach the Royal Military Canal and continuing east into Kent and the seaside community at Hythe; (rail transfer links us down to Dungeness, all being well); and our Finale will then be from Dungeness (Kent) back westwards towards East Sussex … to Camber via Lydd. So, the Finale will in part be through an ‘almost’ British Desert :

  • SUNDAY 26th May : DAYWALK ONE from Hurst Green via SALEHURST HALT pub for lunchtime (after 4.5 miles) to Bodiam Castle (6.7 miles in the afternoon)
  • SUNDAY 23rd June : DAYWALK TWO from Bodiam via THE WHITE HART INN at Newenden for lunchtime (after 5.7 miles) to Iden (7.8 miles in the afternoon)
  • SUNDAY 21st July : DAYWALK THREE from Iden via (hopefully) the BLACK LION INN at Appledore for lunchtime (after 5 miles) and then along the Royal Military Canal to approx Ruckinge (5.67 miles in the afternoon)
  • SUNDAY 18th August : A picnic base for this daywalk section of overall 8.8 miles along the Royal Military Canal eastwards to Hythe; where we will hopefully change to finish on the narrow-guage Romney-Hythe-Dymchurch railway to return to cars close to Dungeness Lighthouse
  • SUNDAY 15th September : our FINALE ~ and now for something comletely different from Dungeness via Lydd back to Camber (overall just over 12 miles but very flat (and not all on shingle!)
