The South Downs Society are hosting an evening with the author and natural navigator, Tristan Gooley.

Tristan is giving a talk exclusively for the Society on Tuesday 28 March the ‘Walker’s Guide to Outdoor Clues & Signs.'

The South Downs National Park, created in 2010, stretches for 100 miles between Eastbourne in East Sussex and Winchester in Hampshire.

Tristan is the author of five award-winning and bestselling books and has also written for The Sunday Times, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the BBC.

He has led expeditions in five continents, climbed mountains in Europe, Africa and Asia, sailed small boats across oceans and piloted small aircraft to Africa and the Arctic. He has walked and studied the methods of Tuareg, Bedouin and Dayak in some of the remotest regions on Earth. Tristan is the only living person to have both flown solo and sailed single-handed across the Atlantic and is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation and the Royal Geographical Society.

Tristan is supporting the charity that aims to conserve the landscape of the South Downs for now and future generations. They are the National Park Society for the South Downs offering over 200 organised walks and events each year.

The South Downs Society is a registered charity set up to conserve and enhance the beauty and amenities of the South Downs for the benefit of the public. It was established in 1923 and successfully defeated proposals for unsuitable coastal development overlooking the famous Seven Sisters area. The Society organises, both for the public and its members, a varied programme of strolls and walks as well as events and talks, all aimed at increasing both the enjoyment and awareness of the South Downs.
