So far, so good. The early summer of 2014 has afforded some pleasant weather at the most appropriate times.
Glynde is amongst my favourite Sussex villages. Useful for public transport links, namely the train and the odd bus, it serves as a useful starting point for many a country jaunt. To the south there is the energy sapping Beddingham Hill, for a view towards the sea, and to the west the resplendent Mt Caburn- for a view to just about everywhere.
I used to attend an annual camp at Glynde, when I was in the Boys Brigade. A number of years later I was to play cricket there for a period of time. To me, it’s a special place. The village has many an attractive old construct, the most holistically appealing of all being the popular Trevor Arms, for obvious reason….
The path to Lewes is determined by what a person wishes to see. For fields of Llamas and Glyndebourne Opera House head up the B road out of the village for a mile or so, then cross country to Lewes. For spectacular Sussex views, from high vantage points, follow the map to the top of Caburn and onwards from there .
At sunrise, or in the heat of the day, this short walk is an absolute must. There are watering houses at either end, and the transport links are very practical.
Distance: About 4 miles
Duration: Under an hour and a half, but you’ll want to stop and look.
