Day Walks on the South Downs features 20 circular routes, between 6 and 14 miles (9km and 22km) in length, suitable for hill walkers of all abilities.
The routes are split into three geographical areas – Hampshire, West Sussex and East Sussex – and include walks to the most historic and beautiful areas of the South Downs National Park, including Winchester Hill Fort, Black Down, Chanctonbury Ring, Devil's Dyke, Ditchling Beacon and Beachy Head.
This guidebook is written by Deirdre Huston, a South Downs local, keen hill walker and experienced author.
Each route in this guide is described with easy-to-follow directions and details of distance, navigation information, refreshment stops and is plotted on clear and easy to use Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 mapping. Also included is a detailed Appendix.
