The South Downs Way Summary

The South Downs Way: Described east-west and west-east by Kev Reynolds

This walking guidebook to the South Downs Way National Trail covers the entirety of the 100 mile route from Winchester to Eastbourne with route descriptions from west to east and east to west. The route is described in 12 stages, accompanied by OS maps and information on accommodation and facilities en route for each day's walking. The South Downs Way explore the Sussex Downs and East Hampshire Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, often along ancient tracks, linking points of interest such as Medieval villages, Iron Age hill forts, and the Long Man of Wilmington - England's largest chalk-figure. The route traces an escarpment for most of the way, providing sweeping views, rarely descending to towns and villages except for the interruption of rich green river valleys, resulting in a surprisingly secretive walk. As well as detailed route descriptions, this guidebook includes practical information on walking the South Downs Way, such as advice on finding accommodation, facilities en route to resupply, as well as details on the best way to travel to and from the start and finish of the walk. The result is an ideal companion for a trek across the South Downs. This guide is part of a two-book series on the North and South Downs Ways.
