What we'll do

Something for the summer ( weather permitting). Clayton is right on the doorstep of Brighton and has some secrets to share. This will be a walk from Hassocks to Clayton ( 1 mile ) through Butchers Wood. In the village, we will see the Clayton Tunnel, designed in 1841 and hear the story of the disaster that happened there in 1846 when two trains collided head-on. We will also visit the church of St John The Baptist which houses medieval murals from the 12th Century. After a drink at The Jack and Jill pub, we will go up to the Jill windmill itself which will have been recently repainted ( Jack is privately owned ) and hear about its history and the windmills place in Sussex agriculture.

This will be a dog-friendly walk for those that are up for walking longer distances than my usual tours. It will also be a longer trip timewise so leave the afternoon free and bring vittles with you too. We will meet at Hassocks train station ( lots of parking there too ) and come back to the same place at the end As always my tours are only £5 each and children go free. Look forward to seeing you there.

What to bring

Water, Sunscreen, Walking shoes, sandwiches and sunshine ( if we all bring some with us there will be plenty )
