  • Overview

    This new edition of this popular guide leads you along the variety of long-distance paths that criss-cross Sussex. It describes 40 day walks and 11 long-distance paths, as well as offering a host of shorter day walks. It includes routes that delve into a rural heartland, that follow streams and rivers, that trace the bank of hammer pond and lake, and those that follow the glistening sea on one side, flanked by sheep-grazed downland on the other. The guide is illustrated with OS mapping and the author's own colour photographs.
