A linear walk from Alfriston village to Eastbourne rail station in East Sussex, forming the 8th stretch of the Sussex Hospices Trail. For almost every step of the way, this stretch accompanies the South Downs Way. You will see lovely Sussex villages, the best of the South Downs National Park and the bustling seaside town of Eastbourne. The hospices of Sussex are dedicated to providing specialist end-of-life care. Friends of Sussex Hospices has worked with partners and supporters to create the Sussex Hospices Trail, a 200 mile long-distance path to support and raise awareness of the twelve hospice care providers that serve the adults and children of Sussex. The route is clear and well signposted and there will usually be other walkers, cyclists or runners on your route. Please note that even on the warmest day it can be windy on the ridge above Eastbourne. The route is quite steep in parts although the way is clear and the paths are well-walked. The chalk paths and tracks can become very muddy and slippery after wet weather. You will need to negotiate a number of gates and road crossings but there are no stiles on route. You will be sharing some of the paths with livestock so take particular care with dogs. The return leg can be completed with a bus journey of about 35 minutes. Allow 5 hours.
