Sussex Walks is a collection of 20 circular walks, between 3.5 and 12 miles (5 and 19km) 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 you're walking through. Every walk also includes 'creative starting points' – ideas to encourage you to reflect and respond to the landscape.
Researched and written by local author and photographer Deirdre Huston, the walks feature clear and easy-to-use Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, and information on local history, wildlife, refreshments and terrain.
