We completed half of this 100 mile walk from Amberley to Eastbourne in late October. The weather was changeable - beautiful skys , rainbows and the inevitable wind and rain. There is not much climbing to be done along the route - normally at the start of the day. The paths are well signposted. There were not many loos on the route so be prepared. Overall a great escape and surprising how few people take advantage of the solitude.

Be prepared with good quality hiking boots as the trail is rocky and uneven and when planning your trip, don't overestimate how far you can get each day, but the route is very well marked and easy to follow.

So lucky to have this nearby. A nice 10k walk today with great views and scenery over the Downs and into the fields below. Plenty of walkers out today doing the same. The tracks were in good condition despite the recent heavy rain. Be aware that it is a byway which motorbikes can use and the vast majority use it respectfully bar for a couple that didn’t today. It’s a great path for all users to benefit from.

Finished the SDW on Thursday 20th August. An amazing must do walking challenge. We walked from Winchester to Eastbourne stopping at B&B's, pubs and YHA. All bar one, excellent to good. Spectacular scenery, wonderful undulating landscapes, far reaching views, challenging climbs, forests, valleys, woodland lanes, picturesque villages. Exhilarating high points on ridges, escarpments and beacons. Loved every minute of this walk (in spite of extremes of weather) and will do it again one day. The last day from Alfreston to Eastbourne, mostly along the coast, is a roller coaster of sweat inducing terrain (if you chose to put the effort in) but by far the best day of walking. Fabulous, just fabulous.

Last week my partner and I walked the South Downs Way, we met a handful of people but no one walking the entire way. We had great weather, great hospitality at our stops and walked it in 7 days, Winchester to Exton, Exton- South Harting, South Harting - Amberley, Amberley - Pyecombe, Pycombe to Rodmell, Rodmell to Afriston and Afriston to Eastbourne to jump in the sea. Beautiful countryside, insets, butterfly's and animals constantly on route , alot of hard surfaces so we would strongly advise walking boots and a few plasters.
