One of the first and still one of the greatest long distance designated walks in England. Justifiably one of the most popular walks in Southern England, it starts on open grassland at Eastbourne, with a gentle symphony of changing views and rolling chalk downs, and ends on wooded slopes at Winchester. The route at its highest points on Ditchling Beacon and Butser Hill gives time to reflect on the changing countryside along the route. It descends to river valleys and attractive villages where overnight stops can be arranged. A peaceful route where the feeling of space is heightened by the pure fresh air. There will almost always be the song of the skylark as an accompaniment to your walk.
