Time Out Walks, Book 2, Walk 25, Lewes via West Firle Circular. 25/9/11.

About 14.5 miles of walking around the South Downs. Starting from the historic town of Lewes, the walker is soon climbing to obtain great views over it and its castle. Shortly after, further great views are had from the old fort of Mount Caburn. After lunch in Firle, there's a climb up towards Firle Beacon to join The South Downs way; walking Westwards along this towards Southease provides the walker with some further great views, both inland and towards the coast. From Southease, it's around 4 miles of level walking along the levee of the River Ouse back into Lewes. A very pleasant walk with some fine views. (Some wind interference on the commentary).
