Anyone up for a summer sunset meet around Devils Dyke? Either Sunday 1st August or Saturday 28th August?
The idea would be to meet at Saddlescombe Farm about lunchtime, walk up and round Newtimber Hill, down to Poynings village, then back up towards Devils Dyke for the late afternoon/evening light.

28th August would be a Bank Holiday Week-End.... would not affect me, in fact I could make both dates
Just to let other people know, there is a "Tea Room" at Saddlescombe Farm for a caffeine fix before the start and a pub in Poynings for mid-walk refreshment
Would love to go but can't do the 1st
Looks good to me just had a quick squiz at Devils Dyke, thanks for letting me know Julie!
Can't do August 1st at the moment so 28th suits me better at the moment.
No trainers anymore, just walking boots!!!!
Can I still come?

Steve.. I wonder if you'll ever live those trainers down!!
Looks like the 28th is the preferred choice atm. I'll post something on the meets page soon with a map etc
I shall check the diary but the 28th would be the fav for me, will look for it being added to the meet page.
28th August - Sounds good.
Rumor has it that Sony may have released a new 500mm lens the week before
Shall I buy
or Shall I buy a Nikon instead ?
or even a few rolls of film and bring along my MF camera
Perhaps we should have a Poll
I will bring the retired trainers along Jeff and you can wear them whilst using your MF camera!
Now lets poll that....lol
Had a sneaky visit this afternoon to Saddlescombe Farm after visiting a fairly nearby camera shop.
Had a chat with a NT warden / ranger who does not see a problem with taking photos for personal use... of what I will not reveal, you will have to come along to find out, that is if it is on Julie's route !
OK I will own up, went along to see how unfit I was at running up hills with a backpack on
And no, I did not spend any money in PC, just looking, trying and comparing products.

Is there not a Pub at the top of Devils Dyke? I seem to remember having a beer there some years ago

Yes Jas, it is still there. You may also be interested to know that the National Trust now charge for parking at The Devil's Dyke!

Even for the pub?
Bit of a liberty if so.
Times are flexible, depending on what others feel may work and how long the route may take. If the weather looks promising it might be an idea to linger in the pub for a bit so we end up back on The Downs for the best light.
I'll come along, but a 14:00 Start Time.
What am I going to do all morning until then ?
