A circular walk from the Swan Inn at Woods Corner in East Sussex. This lovely country walk takes you through fields and stretches of woodland, passing the Sugar Loaf folly built by John 'Mad Jack' Fuller, Squire of Brightling. This walk is one of a collection published through a collaboration with East Sussex County Council. The terrain is moderate and includes several steady gradients plus some sections which can be muddy. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, sections of boardwalk and two wooden fence stiles (one of these has wire mesh surrounds, so dogs will need a lift over). There are a few stretches of road walking on quiet lanes. You are likely to be sharing a few of the fields with sheep and you may come across horses near the stables. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours.

Very enjoyable walk. Mainly across fields, lanes and footpaths. Some what overgrown in places but it was September so to be expected. Fairly easy completed in under an hour and a half

We found it to be not very dog friendly for dogs that like to be off lead, particularly over the the fields where the the farmer has posted his “polite notice” implying that your dog may be shot for worrying his hay!
