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