Waterside Walks in Sussex

Waterside Walks in Sussex

by: Ben Perkins
Water always adds interest to a walk and Sussex is particularly fortunate in having so many waterways to explore. There are the rivers - the Rother, Arun, Ouse, Adur and Cuckmere; the canals - the Wey and Arun Junction and the Royal Military; and the reservoirs - Barcombe, Ardingly, Arlington and Bewl Bridge to enjoy. In addition, there is the coastline from Chichester to Rye.

The 20 circular routes in this book are all between 3 and 7.5 miles in length. They take the walker part of the way along the banks and shoreline of these waterways and through some of the most beautiful scenery in Sussex. Many of the places visited are also havens for birds including pintails, teals, Brent geese, terns, ringed plovers, oystercatchers, warblers, nightingales and many more.

Each walk instruction gives details on how to get to the start, where to park, and what pub food and drink are available locally. For greater clarity, the route descriptions are divided into numbered paragraphs which correspond with the numbers on the accompanying sketch maps. There is also a separate section on attractions available nearby such as Fishbourne Roman Palace, Arundel Castle, Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum, the Belle Tout lighthouse at Beachy Head and the Lavender Line steam railway.
