With a change to autumnal weather predicted for the end of the week I was quick to accept Jerry’s offer of joining him and Tony to walk from Falmer, over the Downs to Lewes. Jerry led on a route he knew well, and it was delightfully varied, and I was glad of the two wooded sections as the sun was strong and the sky unremittingly clear.
After a six mile walk we managed another mile between pubs in Lewes, where we drank Harvey’s Best, followed by more Harvey’s Best, and more. On the way home Jerry and I found one more pub outside London Road station, where I had a pint of Dark Star Sunburst and Jackie joined us. Jackie and I went on to Bardsley’s for fish and chips. I had mine with mushy peas and a bottle of Harvey’s Golden Ale, just to round the day off nicely.
