What a difference a year makes...

20 July 2008
Mr & Mrs Heath (Ray & Alison) lead this splendid circular 11 miles walk from Gravetye Woods to Felbridge where the support team of Mr & Mrs Heath (Ed & Thelma, sprightly as ever) fed us right royally. This is not your usual Mid Sussex Rambler walk. It has become a Heath family special annual event! Many thanks from us all,

The mature woods at Gravetye were magnificent. See also the index below from September 2007 for pictures from last year's walk.
