We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Very marshy at the moment, so quite hard work.
This route could have slight alternatives across fields closer to Hurst rather than Hassocks, but that would simply make it different, not better.

Very enjoyable walk. Very offroad with track but also some rather marshy bridleways. Nice combination of ways with the South Downs as a backdrop. Safe and short enough to not need a big stop but there are a few benches on the way. A route full of birdsong. Some avoidable steps and no stiles. Public transport and pubs at either end.

The route starts at mini-roundabout at the end of Cuckfield Road in Hurstpierpoint and takes a series of (new to me) quaint footpaths around the back of the high street before making its way into the Countryside, with fantastic views of Hurst College and its church.

The highlight is a good mile and a bit taking you along a wide and well trodden bridleway that is adjacent to an old golf course outside of Hassocks. It's peaceful and one of the best walking/running routes around.

Take care when you get the gate in the picture at around half way; there is gate into the farm but you should turn left, walk 10 metres, then take a 90 degree right turn over a small bridge, to start heading north again. This goes around the farm using the footpath.

Once you hit the wonderfully maintained green circle (a project to create a green shared path around the entirety of Burgess Hill), the route is firmer underfoot and winds through leafy surroundings. You are on the Green Circle for while, crossing a fairly busy road at one point.

Finally, the path crosses the railway line to London before a hard left takes you alongside the railway line all the way to the finish in Burgess Hill. An enjoyable route. The train station has regular trains to Brighton and London for returning home, or busses to other Sussex towns nearby. There are also lots of food and drink options in Burgess Hill.
