early summer walk - archive 

This event has now taken place

On Sunday 8th June, BNHC held it's second Community Programme event - an 'early summer walk'. We couldn't have asked for a better day...the sun was shining and the Sussex countryside looked glorious. We started from the former Sunblest Bakery site at Woodingdean and went on a circular stroll through the Castle Hill Nature Reserve, stopping along the way for a delicious picnic. It was a really lovely event that brought students, staff, trustees and friends together in a relaxed social setting. Below are a few photo's of our happy gang...

Mick Barry, one of BNHC’s trustees, was kind enough to recce the walk in advance of our outing, and this is his review of the route taken:

I started the walk from car park adjoining the site of the old Sunblest bakery and walked up Drove Road, to the songs of larks ascending until I reached the entry to the Castle Hill Nature Reserve and descend along hawthorn bushes to the twitter of hedgerow birds. I then walked through the meadow of cowslips which unfortunately will have gone by the time of our walk. I reached Falmer Bottom and turned left pursuing butterflies. I met a man who had walked the Nature reserve for 40 years and he told me of the very rare Early Spider Orchids of which this is one of the 2 principal sites in the country. On reaching the old ruined barn I turned right to where there was a fine picnic spot. After leaving the picnic place I climbed up on the downs again. As I went clouds of larks rose before me - I have never seen so many. There were fine views back over the nature reserve and later on towards the sea as I made my way back to the car park.
