Sunday Walks are back!
Welcome to the Big Lemon’s Sunday Walks programme for 2022
Every few weeks we take the bus out into the countryside on a Sunday, walk at a leisurely pace for about 3-4 hours taking in the scenery and finish for lunch at a nice old country pub.
Walks are between 5-7 miles long and aim to provide good exercise in beautiful country surroundings without being too strenuous, though some walks are quite hilly.
They are suitable for all ages from about 6 onwards, though younger ones are also welcome if you don’t mind carrying them part of the way!
All buses leave Old Steine (South) Stop S, Brighton at 10am and return about 4 – 4.30pm.
Sunday 26 June: Friston Forest & the Long Man of Wilmington
Starting at the wonderfully named Butchers Hole Bottom, we will walk through Friston Forest over to the Long Man of Wilmington.
Friston Forest is a beautiful landscape of native trees, mainly beech, which was planted by the Forestry Commission in the 1930s and 1940s.
Once out of the woods we will walk across the open Downland with wonderful views in all directions towards the Long Man of Wilmington, where we will be able to peer at him from above his head. We will then head down towards the hamlet Milton Street for lunch at the Sussex Ox.
Sunday 24 July: Pevensey Levels & Herstmonceux
Sunday 21 August: Ditchling Beacon & Blackcap
Sunday 11 September: Pulborough Brooks & Amberley

Some feedback from previous walks:
Went on the Washington to Bramber via Chanctonbury Ring walk which was my first trip on the Big Lemon Bus! What a fantastic day out. Really enjoyed the walk with such lovely people. The walks always end in a country pub so you can have a drink or some food when you’ve finished. Would highly recommend the next walk to anyone who enjoys being out in the countryside. Thanks again for a wonderful day.
This summer I discovered the Big Lemon bus walks. I went on the last 4 and have loved every one. It’s always a really nice/friendly bunch of people and I’ve made new friends. The length of walks have been perfect for me too – around 8 miles with a pub at the end 🙂 Thanks to the lovely folks at Big Lemon for organising this. Looking forward to next year’s walks!
