The next club race is to be arranged and the next club stroll is on Saturday 29th September with Helen Franklin as conductor

Welcome to the Surrey Walking Club. The Club was originally formed in 1899 as a race walking club. We are still involved in race walking but we now promote a range of walking related activities including ultra distance walking and we have our own successful long distance social walking section known as the Strollers.

Heading NE into the South Downs National Park, we gain glorious views of undulating hills and Brighton in the distance. Picking up the South Downs Way, we begin to head south crossing the A27, where there is a water stop. We continue on towards our lunch stop at The Juggs pub in Kingston near Lewes, there is a bench nearby for a picnic.

After lunch we head back up onto the South Down Way, at Swanborough Hill, for more stunning views. We stop for a break mid-afternoon at Rodmell, some homemade afternoon snacks will be provided. We then follow the Sussex Ouse Valley Way, for a simple stroll back to Lewes station.
