The route then turns left to cross Benfield Hill, a footbridge over the A27 then down Benfield Valley to Portslade Station. There are no stopping places on the Downs, but there is a friendly cafe at the Benfield Valley FootballGolf Centre at Hangleton near the Portslade end of the walk....
A variation from Holmbush centre to Steyning means you can walk to Steyning and get the bus back. Handy for the monthly market or just to meet friends for lunch!...
The route is 100% paved on pavements through residential streets, plus Southwick Park and Portslade Cemetery....
The section from Portslade as far as the Southwick Tunnel starts off through residential streets, then picks up a long straight footpath alongside allotments, houses, gardens and playing fields. From Beeding Hill, the path follows the South Downs Way down into the Adur Valley, then takes its leave to join the Downslink path towards Bramber. It gets 3* for the Portslade to Southwick Tunnel section and 5* for Southwick Hill to Steyning....
Nice route, the end nearest to Porslade is accessible but isn't after it crosses the A27. We came across a broken style which was hard to get over but not impossible. A photo of the style and screen shot of where it was is attached....
The route is not the most direct route, initially heading down Trafalgar Street in completely the opposite direction....
Nice route out of the centre of Brighton past the Pavilion and on to the promenade....
Nice little route that takes you away from roads where possible like through the cemetery and through the recreation ground but still accessible. We walked in the direction of Porslade to Southwick and got a bit confused as the path wasn't obvious through the leisure centre from the entrance of the centre but was clear when we got closer. Photos attached try to show this....
