Walk Notes

The walk starts and end at Berwick railway station, a 10 minute journey from Lewes. An idyllic ramble through tranquil, quiet and gently undulating countryside with fine views of the downs and weald, highlighting the footpath work of the Ramblers. Lots of opportunities for refreshment, but quite a few stiles.


Berwick Railway Station is served by trains between Brighton, Lewes, Polegate, Eastbourne and Hastings. Trains call once an hour throughout the week. If coming from London, it may be quicker to go to Brighton and change there, rather than changing at Lewes.
