Sussex Walks

Sussex Walks

by: Deirdre Huston
This book is a collection of 20 circular walks, between 3.5 and 12 miles in length that explore the length and breadth of the county of Sussex. Wander through the county's varied and interesting landscapes; across open downland, through broadleaf forest and along evolving coastline.

The routes are split into two areas, the South Downs and the Weald, and include walks in Ashdown Forest, around Cissbury Ring, over Ditchling Beacon, to Pooh Bridge and along the coast near West Wittering. Each route contains snippets of information on the local area. Learn about the wildlife, the history and the people of the countryside which you're travelling through.

Every walk also includes 'creative starting points', ideas to encourage you to reflect and respond to the landscape. Detailed east-to-follow route finding instructions are supported by full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps with the route outlined in green. There is information on local history, wildlife, refreshment options and the terrain, plus numerous delightful colour photographs.
