Nice route mainly along the Downs Link, simple for navigation and mostly flat for walking. A couple of nice little places on the way for refreshments. Only issue is having to cross the fast busy A283 which isn't pleasant.

I walked from Partridge Green to Steyning.
Agree with other reviwers, this is a super route, very easy to navigate, you can put the phone/GPS away, lift your head up and enjoy the scenery. I did this walk as part of a walk to Shoreham and took the Downs Link practically all the way, the scenery gets better the further South you go. The bird song was fantastic, no traffic noise, few roads to cross. I enjoyed a stop with an excellent view at The Cabin at Berre, coffee, cakes, portaloos. The only drawback was that my feet were (literally) aching for a softer surface to walk on. Lots of snack stops.
The Downs Link is very suitable for wheels, but this route diverts into Steyning, using footpaths with steps (its the same going out of Steyning back onto the Link to Shoreham).

I agree with everything Bostal Boy has said!

This is a brilliant Slow Way. I'd not been to Steyning before and arriving into the town was a real treat. What a gorgeous small town. I'm coming back!.

Unfortunately it does include some steps and so is not fully accessible. I think someone local could design a version that would be usable by more people.

Walked from Partridge Green in early March.

This route follows uses the Downs Link the whole way to the outskirts of the Steyning, then residential streets to the finish at Steyning High Street. The Downs Link is a disused railway line repurposed and used by walkers, runner, cyclists and horse riders.

Popular, easy to follow, flat. There is the occasional gate along the way, designed to allow horses and cyclists through. Refreshments are available midway at Henfield on the route with more choice in the centre of the village about 1/2 mile off the route. There are plenty of benches along the route.

    I enjoyed this one. I do think there might be a way to avoid some of the steps. Maybe along King's Barn Lane?

    Hi Dan. You are correct. The STEHUR route comes into Steyning via Kings Barn Lane. This is the official Downs Link route, a bit longer but completely accessible.
