East Sussex - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

East Sussex - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

by: David and Hilary Staines
There are few counties in England that can match the variety of scenery and history of East Sussex. From the rolling hills of the High Weald to the stunning coastline where the South Downs meet the English Channel, the county offers many opportunities for safe walking with a dog. It is always difficult, when leaving familiar routes, to know what you and your dog will encounter. Will there be a field of sheep or a busy road to negotiate?

With this book there is no need to worry. The 20 tried and tested walks give plenty of chances for dogs to roam freely off the lead. The routes vary in length from 2.5 miles to 6 miles and provide a great introduction for dogs and their owners to some of the most interesting spots in East Sussex. For instance, there is Bewl Water and the streams and tributaries that flow into the River Ouse near Barcombe Mill; the Seven Sisters Country Park and Cuckmere Haven; pretty villages such as East Dean, Forest Row and Alfriston; and several castles such as Pevensey, Herstmonceux, Camber and Bodiam.

All the walks include details of dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog friendly pubs and cafes and contact details for the nearest vets. Other practical information includes distance, terrain, where to park, how to get there and nearest refreshments. The route finding instructions are in clear numbered paragraphs supported by a coloured sketch map with corresponding location numbers.
