    Lewes Circular via Glynde and Southease walk An energetic walk over 3 seperate hills in the South Downs NP with great views throughout. - 24 June at 8:30–19:00 - 23.5km (14.6 miles) - Dificultad: 7 de 10 Event: http://www.senderismoenlondres.co.uk/events.html This is an energetic walk (550 metres or 1,600 feet of ascent) over three distinct downland ridges, with magnificent views throughout. One of the pleasures of the walk is that the entire route is in view for much of the walk, so you can look back at the terrain you have already done or ahead to the delights to come. Navigation is easy, the walking is over wide and distinct paths, and while there are three substantial climbs, most of the walk is flat, gently undulating or downhill. As well as plenty of grand downland walking, the route includes a start and finish in historic Lewes, quaint corners of which you see both at the start and end of the walk, an optional detour to Mount Caburn (Iron Age fort) with its dramatic viewpoint of the whole circuit, and the pleasant small village of Glynde. You also pass the remote station of Southease, with its YHA cafe nearby.

    amib, Aug-12

    Another lovely walk through the South Downs. This time, around 13 miles over three ridges that provide excellent views, on a clear day. Starting out in Lewes, the walker is soon up on the Downs, looking back over the town and across the River Ouse to the ridges that will be walked later. After a bracing walk across the first ridge, lunch is taken at Caburn Hill, a former Iron Age Fort. Thereafter, it's down hill into the village of Glynde, across the busy A24 and then back uphill towards the radio masts of Beddingham Hill for the second ridge walk of the day. Following The South Downs Way, the walker eventually descends into the valley and the remote station of Southease. The path goes over the River Ouse again, through Rodmell village before ascending for the final ridge walk of the day, enabling the walker to look back at what's previously been walked. Some delightful scenery. Then, it's a final descent away from the South Downs Way back into Lewes. A great walk that incorporates elements of previous Book 2 walks in the area, improving upon them, if that's possible, with some fine ridge views.
