South Downs National Park and West Sussex  Walks Pathfinder Guidebook

by: Nick Channer revised by Fiona Barltrop
This guidebook provides 180 miles of absorbing walking through the heathland, wooded vale and pretty villages of the Low Weald from Durford Heath to Ardingly, across the splendid spine of chalk that is the backbone of the South Downs National Park, including 'Glorious' Goodwood and the prehistoric hill forts at Cissbury and Chanctonbury Rings, and Sussex-by-the-Sea from the intricate inlets of Chichester Harbour to the unspoilt Climping.

This Pathfinder Guide makes the ideal companion for country walks throughout West Sussex and the South Downs. Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed 1:25,000 scale maps from Ordnance Survey and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, all tried and tested by seasoned walkers, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks and each walk recalls a unique aspect of West Sussex. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the routes features. The following route finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. There are GPS references for all the route waypoints and the route is highlighted in yellow on the map.
