This guide leads you along the variety of long-distance paths that criss-cross the county of Sussex and offers a host of shorter day-walks. Through and across Sussex routes have been woven for unnumbered generations - 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 pure and simple. This guide gives details of 40 day-walks and 11 long-distance paths around Sussex, and includes routes that delve into a rural heartland, that floow streams and rivers that trace the bank of hammer pond and lake, and those that follow the glistening sea, flanked by sheep-grazed downland. The book is illustrated with the author's own full-colour photographs and sketch maps.
