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. Presented here in 12 stages of up to 12 miles (19km), the route is described in both east-west and west-east. 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 1:50,000 mapping for every stage, and a separate, conveniently sized booklet with 1:25,000 maps for the entire route is included. The guide provides detailed practical information on getting to the trail, and facilities and accommodation en route. 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. Highlights include Beachy Head, the mysterious Long Man of Wilmington, Clayton Windmills and the ancient cathedral city of Winchester.
