You must have appropriate footwear and clothing. You should carry any medicines that you may require, food and water and details of next of kin. In case of an emergency you are responsible for any additional costs of taxi fares etc..
You must inform the walk leader of any medical condition, which might affect your ability to complete the walk.
The walk leader reserves the right to refuse anyone whom is believed to be unsuited to the walk for whatever reason.
British weather is very varied – even within one day. In the event of bad weather, the walk leader may choose to shorten or even cancel a walk. In any case you must carry protective clothing to protect yourself from the worst that the weather may throw at you in Sussex.
Please be aware that a circular walk in the High Weald of Sussex can involved considerable elevation. A typical nine miles circular walk in the High Weald involves hundreds of meters of ascent and descent.
If you prefer a less vigorous walk, then a shorter, flatter walk would be more enjoyable.
A guided walk and explanation of historical Cuckfield is two miles and takes a couple of hours.You should chose a walk within your existing capabilities.
