Described as “probably the most beautiful short walk in the South Downs National Park”, the Joadian Way Ramblette will take place the weekend before Easter – Saturday April 8 – to mark the 64th Anniversary of South Downs philosopher and writer C.E.M. Joad (1891-1953), who became famous in the wartime Brains Trust.
Starting from Amberley Station at 11am, the short walk will pass through North Stoke near the South Downs Way (with its unique red telephone box/information point), and then on to South Stoke where Joad wrote many of his 100+ books in the 1940s.
On arrival back at Amberley Station by 12.30pm (approx), there will be an option for lunch at the Riverside Restaurant by Houghton Bridge.
All are warmly welcome. Good walking boots are strongly recommended as it is likely to be muddy in places.
