The Next Ride: Sunday 13 May 2018 – Ford via Binsted to Littlehampton

This ride will take us through beautiful Binsted woods, currently threatened by the Arundel by-pass. I’m hoping Emma or Mike Tristram will be able to come and explain a little of what is proposed.

We will have a brief stop at the Norman church of St Mary Magdalen near a farmyard. Then we go on through the woods which should be full of bluebells at this time of year. We also pass Binsted church also very quaint but a little modernised by the Victorians. If time we can visit the Madonna pond with echoes of the famous trysts between Lorna Wishart and Laurie Lee.

South of the railway line there is a chance for morning coffee and then on down the Littlehampton road (not nice I’m afraid) for a short while until we get to a byway leading to the sea. Bathing optional (!) and then there is lunch at the Black Horse Inn Climping. From there we go via delightful lanes to Littlehampton and a return train.

Meet Brighton station at 10.15 for 10.30 train to Ford.
