A walk encompassing beautiful South Downs scenery, involving a short, steep climb, followed by a long, gradual climb, and culminating in a steep descent by road. It is only suitable for walkers as two stiles must be crossed. Ringmer is most easily reached via the No. 28 bus service from Brighton or Lewes which operates half-hourly on Mondays to Saturdays, and hourly on Sundays. There is a wide variety of bus and train services available at Lewes.
