A walk through the valley….
Join us for a spring walk through the Combe Haven valley. See for
yourself where the Link Road would go, and the devastation it would
cause to what ESCC has described as ‘probably the finest medium-sized
valley in East Sussex, outside of Areas of Outstanding Natural
Beauty’. As well as a lovely walk, it’s also a chance to meet other
people opposed to the road, and to do some plotting and planning!
Where will we go?
These walks will follow public footpaths and bridleways, and are
completely legal. We won’t follow the proposed route of the road (which
would involve going onto land which has been compulsorily purchased by
the County Council) but will cross the route in several places, in order
to give partipants a good understanding of where the road would run.
The walk is about 5 miles. The walking is gentle but it may be muddy
underfoot if we’ve had rain. There is a slightly shorter option, about
3 1/2 miles, for those who don’t want to cover the whole route.
Alternatively, walkers may wish to walk some way into the valley with
us, then double back to the pub!
Dates: Sunday May 12, Sunday May 26, 2pm (we’ll wait for walkers on the train which arrives at Crowhurst at 13.38)
Where: Meet Crowhurst recreation ground. The recreation ground is about 20 mins walk from Crowhurst station, and almost next to the pub should you need some pre- or post-walk refreshment. There may be a lift available from Hastings: email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who: everyone is welcome including dogs on leads. We’ll be taking a leisurely place, with time to stop and look at what’s going on in the valley.
