10 Walks Around Lewes


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

 Walk are in the menu at the top of the page. There is an extra walk not from Lewes linked on this website.

These walks were originally designed specifically for an ebook and for ease of reading on a  phone during the walk and therefore contain sparse text notes, crafted to keep you on route. They have been expanded here with images etc.

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.

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 blue routes shown on the maps are not detailed and approximations only. Go by the adjacent footpath on the map.

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
