A ramble round the follies

This post is nothing to do with the law – if that is what you are looking for, try another post, please.

This is instead about a planned walk (approximately 4.5 miles – 7 kilometres – mainly along footpaths and C roads, but also using a bridle path and a stretch of a B road)  in Brightling, East Sussex, to view the various follies, etc, of Mad Jack Fuller – and to have a pub lunch afterwards.

Take a look at the map of the route of the walk, which takes in all the Mad Jack Fuller follies I can trace.  If you know of any more, please let me know in the comments or by email. If you’d like to join us on Friday 07 September 2012 at the Swan at Wood’s Corner at 9am for the walk, you’ll be welcome.  If you want to reserve a place there for lunch, either do so direct or let me know in the comments or by email by 4pm on Friday 31 August 2012.

The relevant OS Explorer Map is number 124 (Hastings & Bexhill, Battle & Robertsbridge), with the start and finish point (the Swan Inn, Woods Corner, Dallington) at OS reference TQ667194

Let’s hope the weather is favourable!

EDIT: By all means, bring non-aggressive dogs
