Tuesday July 16 - Newtimber Hill - Jim and Janet Howell

We will meet at the National Trust centre at Saddlescombe Farm. The easiest way to get there is along the A27 to the roundabout for Devils Dyke Road. Stay on this road all the way to Saddlescombe Farm. As you are approaching the Farm, you will see a bright pink sign for it at the bottom of the hill. However, just before the sign, there is a small car park on your left. If you can't park there, drive on to the Farm entrance, where the pink sign is an drive into the farm. Although it says entry is only for farm vehicles, we have arranged with the National Trust that you can park there if there is no space across the road. Janet and I will station ourselves at the entrance and further along to direct you.

If you would like to car-share but don't have a contact of your own, Ros Hall would be happy to co-ordinate this. If you are happy to offer a lift, please send Ros an email (to by Saturday evening, saying how many passenger seats you have available and where you are starting from. If you would like a lift, please email Ros with your address.

This is a relatively short walk, with only a slight incline, unless you want to be more adventurous. There are lots of plants flowering which are typical of unimproved chalk grassland, along with, if the weather is kind, many insects. At the end of the walk, we can recommend the Wildflower Cafe, at the Farm, which is a wonderful place for lunch.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Extra Weekend Activities

The Society is planning a series of additional walks and activities this year, to be held at Weekends, in the hope that people unable to attend the usual Tuesday events, perhaps due to a daytime job, may find these events more accessible.
