Longer walk: Cocking & the South Downs

Six of us are now allowed to meet outside provided we observe social distancing and we do not include:

  • Those who are shielding because they are extremely vulnerable (or living with an extremely vulnerable person); or
  • Those who have a possible or confirmed Covid-19 infection.

The HIU3A committee agrees we can resume our longer walks programme subject to these constraints and any others that might be imposed by the UK government.

To ensure we stay within the six person limit, attendance on the walk is invitation only. Please do not turn up at the start unless you have been invited - we will abandon the walk rather than conduct it illegally.

If you want to join us, please send me an email.

We will travel to the start independently. We will not meet in West Town Car Park.

At 7.7 miles this is one of our shorter 'longer walks' but it does include significant ascents and descents.

We'll walk along the South Downs way going west from Cocking with a detour down the north face of the downs to Didling and then back up again. We'll then go back along the South Downs way with a detour into woodland to get some shade before a final up and down to our start point.

This is the route we plan to take:
