10 Walks Around Lewes


Welcome to the '10 Walks around Lewes' website: walking guides for printing and for your smart Phone.


These guided walks were originally designed specifically for ease of reading on a smart phone during the walk and contain sparse text notes, crafted to keep you on route. They have now been expanded here with images etc but the original e book for your smartphone can still be obtained  for a nominal fee at the links page from where walk instructions can be downloaded in any 'e' format. You can download repeatedly in different formats.

Please Ignore any archaic stuff about: passwords and shoutboxes. GPX, PDFs can be obtained via the link list, not from the walk pages.



Ten walks around Lewes



Each waymark has an OS map ref and lat/long co-ordinates. There is a further walk not from Lewes linked on this website.

Feedback is welcome,

This is not very remote country: If you go wrong you're unlikely to disappear for ever and you'll probably be able to manage without a map. However, for your maximum enjoyment, an OS map is recommened.

The routes shown on the maps are not detailed and approximations only.

Walks are between 3 and 12 miles long. Most involve a walk up the Downs and some can be broken up into shorter sections.



Links - Most places and items are mentioned in Wikis but I've tried to go for more personalised sites.

if you want to print off a web page, it's best to use the 'printable' pdf link though these do not automatically update.



About Me

I'm just retired and have been hiking since I was a teenager. I contribute to the website www.walkingworld.com in which you will find these walks along with about 6000 others: mostly in Britain but with a growing number in France and Spain.

I lead 'Walking for Health' walks, which leave from the Needlemaker's car Park in Lewes at 10 am every Friday.

I have an interest in hedge laying and apply these skills to garden hedges see hedger
