Richard, who house is close to the VGW has told us he has in his garden ‘put up a sad scrap-iron sculpture of a centurion on his way home’ pointing out the way to walk the VGW. This is where it is close one of the local roman roads, this one is known to historians, somewhat blandly, have called it the London to Lewes Way. It effectively connected London with Newhaven, the Vanguard Way is its modern equivalent!”
We will be putting up a direction sign soon.
Lets hope Neil is successful and finds the information emailed from Colin in his quest for safe parking as he walks the Way
A signage maintenance visit was made to the northern part of VGW Section 6, Poundgate to Buxted. At the start of the diverted route north of High Hurstwood the signs were clear but a number of broken or missing discs had to be replaced, and impromptu clearances made around stiles. More work remains to be done including repairing a broken fingerpost found hidden in overgrowth.
We met Steve, Martin and Ralph who were exploring the Way. Good wishes to them
Congratulations to David and Elaine who separately completed the VGW both starting in August and completing in 4 stages by November
