The Devil’s Punchbowl 200

The Devil's Punchbowl route

Our cycling and Civil Defence correspondent, General Sir Frederick (”Tiger”) Nidgett, writes as follows:

The summer offensive continues. Garish hordes of gore-tex Visigoths and spandex Vandals will be blocking traffic and intimidating pets and pedestrians as they drive an aesthetic assault along the Clappers Lane salient, The Street, and Edburton Road on the evening of Sunday 15th July, between 20:00 and 21:30. An MTB patrol from Fulking Home Guard will be out earlier in the day to set cycle traps, install temporary misdirection signage, and leave a crate of complimentary nitrite-enhanced rehydration packs beside the pump house.

The devil’s other pub

Inn at Devil's Dyke
Although it rarely features here, readers will be familiar with the Devil’s Dyke Hotel. You may even be able to see it from where you live. However, you may not have realized that there is another pub up there, a mere 634 yards (0.36 miles) away from the latter. But further information is scanty:

  • We currently have no information about the attributes at this pub. If you know Inn At Devils Dyke we would love you to update any missing details, or correct anything you think is wrong. Update the pub details.
  • We’re really sorry but we don’t seem to have any offers or events for Inn At Devils Dyke. We’re sure there must be something happening here but they just haven’t told us about it! Please do mention this to Inn At Devils Dyke when you next visit them.
  • Be the first to review this pub. There don’t appear to be any reviews for our pub as yet, why not be the first to add a review now?
  • Sorry, StreetView is not currently available for this pub.

There is a wooded area at the top of the Dyke — could this pub be in there somewhere?
