The Winter edition of the Ramblers Walk magazine has an item about the Vanguard Way. We are 8th in Britains top ten trails. The London Loop and the Capital ring are joint 9th.
There are several ramblers who have contacted us with lots of comments and useful information.
Andrew from Croydon noted the mud around Hasted Mill, temporary fencing around Gills Gap and returning to the route after getting lost.
Carol is planning her Vanguard way walk and now has details of out website www.vanguardway.org.uk. We wish her every success and hope she enjoys the routes.
Owen has reported obstacles along section 4 including road closures, mud, floods, the kindness of a local postal worker and Raffles (Forest Row as a good point to have lunch)
Best wishes to James from Friends of the South Downs and their planned walk.
Lets hope Jim and Suzanne have an easier time after section 4. We always try to update the directions and thanks to Roger for volunteering to attach some Vanguard way discs
