East Dean Walk

ON a sunny but breezy morning of Tuesday 17th April, twelve members and wives met at the East Dean car park to embark upon the first of this season's walks.
This walk had been chosen some time ago when we were experiencing a particularly bad spell of weather as it is basically on firm open ground with very little mud.
Our route took us out of East Dean in the direction of the coast and past the former Seven Sisters Sheep Centre where from the undulating paths we were able to enjoy some spectacular scenic views towards Belle Tout and Birling Gap. Having endured the wind for the first mile and a half it was a relief to walk along just below the Lighthouse when the warmth of the day became apparent for the first time.
Birling Gap was chosen as our ‘drinks break’ stop, and some of our members took the opportunity to buy ice creams or tea and scones which were available. It also provided the scenery for the group photograph.
The return leg involved a steep ascent at the start which levelled out onto a grassy flat expanse leading back to Crowlink, and then through Friston church back to the Tiger Inn for much needed liquid and solid refreshment.
The food, when it arrived, seemed to have been enjoyed by all and good fellowship was clearly in evidence.
It was particularly good to welcome Ken together with Tony and Hilary for their first walk with the group along with our canine friends Teddy and the new recruit Bailey.
