A linear route which forms the seventh part of the Sussex Hospices Trail. The walk starts at Southease rail station, just the other side of the River Ouse from the lovely village of Southease, and follows the South Downs Way along the scarp slope of the downs all the way to Alfriston. 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 steep at the start and then it is easier walking on the Downs before descending into Alfriston. The route follows the South Downs Way and so is well-walked and fairly easy to navigate. There are several gates to negotiate and two cattle grids. There may be livestock on the Downs, so take particular care with dogs. Allow 3.5 hours.
