Alfriston walk 2022.

Saturday 17th December to Sunday 18th December 2022. There were complications this year owing to a two day train strike which meant half the walkers had to arrange car journeys to get to Falmer station.  Michael had the best idea by booking a cottage in Alfriston for the Friday and Saturday nights but on Saturday morning, a burst water main which was then leaving ice across the main road meant his taxi couldn't collect him!  Myself and Ruth collected Smoth, Bob and George from Alfriston and drove to Falmer.  We had our new puppy, Sybil, in the car with us.  We met the Bish family at the farm shop and started eating the mince pies early.  Ian tried to get to the top of the path but it was too icy.  The walk past Kingston was stunning in the sun and Paul and Clive appeared after walking up from Lewes.  The Abergavenny Arms was under new ownership and was really good, friendly staff, nice food that appeared very quickly, recommended.  We stopped at Southease church but it was locked,
