Walk and Lunch organised by Jill and Martin - Sunday 18th July 2010

Jill and Martin organised this walk and lunch around the picturesque village of Firle situated at the base of the South Downs in East Sussex.  Cleverly they even arranged for the weather to be cooler than the recent very high temperatures - a relief to all!

We set off from the car park at The Ram Inn, strolling through the village, before taking to one of the many pathways and tracks that lead around and into the South Downs.  Fortunately for us (me), the chosen route skirted around the more mountainous terrain!

We walked for about an hour, through leafy paths, past small country cottages and finally across the park lands of Firle Place, an impressive property set within nearly 300 acres of gardens and parkland, until we arrived back at the village, just in time for lunch!

We returned to The Ram Inn and found ourselves a comfortable table in the gardens and awaited the arrival of our lunch whilst having a good chat. Lunch choices ranged from a very cheesy cheese ploughmans, to tasty looking roast dinners. All agreed that lunch was very good - well worth the walk that earned it !

All in all a lovely way to spend a Sunday in Sussex. Many thanks to Jill and Martin for organising this event and all of those that attended.
