  • Hassocks to Brighton. 14/4/13.
    amib, Apr-13

    Another very pleasant 12 miler in West Sussex that incorporates a variety of scenery. After a short urban section in Hassocks, the walker is soon on a former Roman road and heading towards Ditchling, with its attractive church. Then, its on across meadows and through woodland prior to the ascent of Ditchling Beacon, where lunch is had, with some fine views. Thereafter, it's on across the Downs and through more woodland to arrive in the grounds of Stanmer Park. Shortly after, the walker is in the village of Stanmer, with its unusual donkey-powered well and grand house, Stanmer House. Then, it's on through the grounds of Sussex University and so to the pretty hamlet of Falmer, where the walk can be terminated, if desired. Continuing on, the walker passes the impressive home of Brighton and Hove Albion, The Amex Stadium, and then on past some less impressive neighbourhoods before reaching the Kemp Town race track. Thereafter, it's on into bustling Brighton and all it has to offer, which, today, included the death of a marathon runner!
