STAGE 6 – OVERVIEW
Rolling down to the South Downs. This walk follows paths through surprisingly rural sections of Haywards Heath out into the Sussex countryside and ends right at the base of the now towering South Downs.
Suburban roads and paths for the first couple of miles, then out into farmland and woodland. The route passes through Ditchling and then along an old Roman road to the outskirts of Hassocks.
