Walks will be every Wednesday starting at 10.30am and each week a different part of Ashdown Forest will be explored.

If you are walking with us for the first time, please complete this form and bring it with you on your first walk. Alternatively, arrive well in time to fill in the form before the walk sets off.

The walks all take place in the countryside, so please make sure you wear suitable shoes (walking boots or comfortable wellingtons) and dress for the weather conditions on the day (waterproof and layers in case you get warm / cold).

The routes are generally easy although uneven terrain and mud cannot always be avoided.

Walks will last no longer than an hour, but you may want to bring a small bottle of water or a flask. Except for Broadstone car park, there are no facilities at the meeting points.

The meeting point for each walk can be found in the programme below, along with a map showing their location.

Another map showing more walks and all of the car parks can be viewed here.
