Getting There

A circular walk from Eridge rail station in East Sussex. This country walk, with some hilly sections, passes near the magnificent Harrison Rocks and the Spa Valley railway where there's chance to see a steam train. This walk is one of a collection published through a collaboration with East Sussex County Council. The terrain is moderate difficulty and includes some hilly sections. The paths take you through a mixture of woodland, fields and quiet lanes. You will need to negotiate several gates, footbridges and flights of steps plus 9 stiles. There is a chance you may come across livestock in a few of the fields. Allow 2.5 hours.

The walk starts and finishes at Eridge rail station, making it ideal for arriving by public transport. If you are coming by car, there is some roadside parking available close to the station. Approximate post code TN3 9LE.

Great walk, would recommend. There was a great pub a short car journey away from the station which we had lunch in afterwards, the Nevill Crest and Gun, which I’d really recommend if you’re driving.

I wasn’t able to follow it after the first third. Under the bridge it was flooded and had to take a huge diversion. After the storm kicked in so had to take the safest and quickest way back via main lanes. I’ll try it again in summer!

Nice walk but very muddy in parts. The bridge under the rail track was very flooded so we scrambled up the bank and pegged it across the tracks and scrambled down the other side
