Saturday 9 June 2018 : PLUMPTON to HASSOCKS (LINEAR).

Saturday’s walk was beautiful, combining flat paths through summer meadows with the glories of the South downs. We were well rewarded after our two mighty slogs up onto the South Downs Way by views either side & lark song, then lovely chalk paths down to the valleys & refreshment stops. The tea shop in Ditchling will be forever remembered as the place where Sunita gave the tea 10/10. This has always seemed an academic number, no tea could ever be that good, but she stood firm so Ditchling is a place to remember & return to. It seemed a shame not to enjoy such a beautiful day to the full so at the end of the walk we all had a drink in the garden of the Jack & Jill pub in Clayton, just before Hassocks station.
