Wednesday 4 June 2008, Cuckfield circular walk via Ansty

This 4.5miles Wednesday evening walk was part of the Mid Sussex Ramblers program of walks, I was the main leader for the walk . I suggested that we should spot some deer, and thanks to the eagle-eyes of Terry -- we did! There were 35 souls who set off from Cuckfield at 19.30hr, south - through the mud - to Ansty. David and Richard counted the number and Richard bravely volunteered to be back marker. These pictures are in Cuckfield churchyard .

During the walk Terry was kind enough to lead an appropriate pace better than I would have done, whilst with such great team-support, I could relax and chat a bit!

Many of the group ended up in the recently refurbished Talbot Inn, Cuckfield for animated discussion, where the Harvey's bitter was just excellent.In conclusion, the walk could be considered a success due to;
  • a good turn out from the Mid Sussex Ramblers;
  • Terry's support, who gauged the pace perfectly and allowed the group to bunch up at strategic points;
  • Richard, who was the perfect back marker who never lost a soul: assisted by David who also kept an eye on the group of 35. Thanks to you all for coming.
