Walking The South Downs Way - Kev Reynolds
The South Downs Way National Trail is a 100 mile (160km) walk between Eastbourne and Winchester, staying within the glorious South Downs National Park for its entire length. This book presents it in 12 stages of up to 12 miles (19km), and is described in both east-west and west-east directions. A waymarked trail with very few stiles, it can be walked at any time of year and makes a good introduction to long-distance walking.
Step-by-step route descriptions are illustrated with extracts from OS 1:25,000 mapping for every stage - the guidebook comes with a separate map booklet of 1:25,000 scale OS maps showing the full route of the South Downs Way. The compact format is conveniently sized for slipping into a jacket pocket or the top of a rucksack. The South Downs Way offers easy walking on ancient and historical tracks, and showcases the beautiful countryside of the South Downs, taking in wooded areas, delightful river valleys and pretty villages.
