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

 

NOTES

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
