Very simple route to follow, nice to walk along the race course path instead of next to the road for the top section. If you're starting near Happy Valley park in Woodingdean it's more interesting to walk up & over the fields instead of down Warren Road...Elm Grove is steep if coming from Brighton!...

Lovely, easy, scenic route from Woodindean straight to the heart of Lewes. One steepish chalky section to take care over if it's wet....

Most of the route is on downland paths where the South Downs National Park butts up against the scruffy edges of Brighton. Some of the paths were slippery with chalky mud....

Once over the road, a permissive bridle path heads briefly parallel to the main road then turns sharply to head uphill and onto the Downs. After crossing Ditchling Road the route heads into Stanmer Park towards the village which has a popular teashop. The path then heads into the campus of Sussex University (worth a look round), passing through and out to Falmer village....

This is a pleasant, direct and easy to follow route from the edge of Brighton into the centre of Lewes. Quite muddy when wet though!...

Walked as part of a longer walk to Lewes - so if you are doing the same then instead of going into Woodingdean itself, return to Warren Road before the end of the racecourse, and take the Drove Road where you will eventually join up with the Slow Way from Woodingdean to Lewes...

Really loved this walk - combined it with the Brighton to Woodingdean route with a small amend to that one to pick up the Drove Road earlier on Warren Road. Great views and no real challenges, though the chalk path downhill section from Castle Hill can need a little bit of care depending on the weather....
