South Midweek Walk 2019 - Pulborough Gallop Circular
2 people attending
18 places left
A circular 4.8 mile walk starting from the station, we will head North through the gallops towards Codmore Hill, cutting across the A29, walking over the Railway Line (Health & Safety) and crossing the highest point of Broomers Hill, then walking down on footpaths to the Lower Street and the lovely White Horse Inn where we will stop for refreshment (at just over 3 miles). Hopefully we will be able to sit in their lovely garden. We will stay long enough for people to eat as required. I plan to do this, but you can eat before the walk and just have a drink if you like or bring a packed meal (see food and drink).
From here, we walk along Lower Street and then on smaller roads/paths back to the Station (approx 1.5 miles).
The event will close at 12.30 on the day of the walk and you will be unable to register or take yourself off the event after this time.

What to bring
Water: bring at least a half a litre.
Medicines: if you have hay fever, diabetes, minor ailments etc.
Rucksack: or any other bag
Footwear: hiking boots, sturdy trainers or wellies

Sunglasses: for any sunny day, even in winter
Sun cream: can be useful even on cloudy and winter days
