A Walk of Two Halves
Beginning at Gildredge Road Bus Stop, we will catch the No.12 bus to East Dean where we will begin our walk onto the Downs. Heading along the coastal path, we will descend into the Cuckmere, into West Dean and Friston Forest, making our way back to East Dean where we will board the bus back to Eastbourne.
Please note that this walk will be very hilly and potentially muddy in the forest.
