SWC Free Walk 25, Southease to Eastbourne. 7/8/11.

Approximately 16.5 miles of walking from the remote station of Southease to the seaside resort of Eastbourne via the South Downs. From the outset, the walk follows the South Downs Way and climbs up to a ridge to reach Firle Beacon, where this walker stopped for lunch, due to a late start. Following the ridge, which is well way-marked, the walker soon arrives in the pretty village of Alfriston. Crossing over the Cuckmere river, there's a further climb over Wilmington Hill to the village of Jevington. From here, there's one final climb for some fine views of Eastbourne and the south coast. The walker has a choice of paths for the finale into Eastbourne. An excellent summer walk (due to the length) with some fine views and which is particularly tranquile east of Alfriston. (Wind affected commentary. The beetle seen was a Dor beetle, aka 'Dumbledor'...).
