We will meet in the village square of The Marina, seeing it where it once passed as this site hadn’t been built during its existence. The walk will be approximately 1.3 miles along the undercliff path observing the tracks if low tide permits visibility. We will return towards Brighton with a pause for refreshments at The Daddy Longlegs pub in kemptown. Here is a map to help you begin.
For people heading back into Brighton, the start of The Pioneer’s journey began from ‘Banjo Groyne’ in Kemptown on the main promenade opposite Paston Place.
If you can’t make this and are not in Brighton make sure you collect a ‘Pioneer’ postcard of the Daddy Longlegs with instructions on the reverse, so you can trigger the experience anywhere you like.
