About this book

Through and across Sussex routes have been woven for unnumbered generations and paths and trackways whose purpose was to aid the hunter, home-maker, flint-miner, iron-worker, soldier, farmer, smuggler, timberman. It is only in comparatively recent times that man has taken to the byways for the sake of recreation. This new edition of this popular guide leads you along the variety of long-distance paths that criss-cross the county and offers a host of shorter day walks. It contains details of 40 day walks and 11 long-distance paths through Sussex. 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. It is illustrated with OS mapping the author's own full-colour photographs. This is a fully-updated edition of this popular guide by an experienced and interesting author. "These days I prefer to wander rather than march, to dream beside a brook, taste a leaf or two, lean on a gate and wear the view!" - Kev Reynolds.
