South Downs Way - Trailblazer

South Downs Way - Trailblazer

by: Jim Manthorpe
This guide describes the South Downs Way from west to east, following the National Trail along the line of chalk hills stretching from Winchester in Hampshire across Sussex to Eastbourne. Walking the length of the Downs is the best way to experience this beautiful landscape with its mixture of rolling hills, steep hanging woodland and windswept fields. You'll also pass through picture-postcard villages with welcoming pubs, thatched cottages and quintessentially English gardens.

One of the strengths of Trailblazer guides is the mapping and this guide includes 60 detailed sketch maps at the large scale of 1:20,000, making route finding easy. The unique mapping features include walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay, places to eat and points of interest. These are not general purpose maps but fully edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers. The maps are supported by detailed route descriptions. Itineraries cover hiking the 100 mile route in its entirety or sampling the delights on day walks or short breaks and include detailed public transport information for all access points.

There is practical information for all budgets, what to see, where to stay, where to eat including pubs, hotels, B&B, camping and hostels. The introductory chapters are packed with information about planning the walk, the environment and nature.
