Along and Around the Wealdway
Around the Wealdway
The Wealdway is a long-distance
path pioneered by Kent and Sussex Ramblers in cooperation with Kent
and East Sussex County Councils. It is an exceptionally fine
walk running from Eastbourne on the south coast to Gravesend in the
north, passing through the South Downs, the High Weald, Ashdown Forest
and the North Downs.
"Along and Around the
Wealdway" was published in
1999 and is now out of print.
We currently have a
very small number of these excellent books available as a package with
our book of 10 Favourite Walks at £7 the pair including
postage. We will also include a Wealdway rucksack badge at no
extra cost. As stocks are very low indeed, please
email to reserve a copy before sending any money.
The guide is in two parts - a 72 page Travel Guide
describing the geology, ecology and history of the terrain and a 50
page Walk Guide with large scale Ordnance Survey route maps and more
detailed descriptions of points of interest.

price of £3.50. To reflect the fact that some details may now be
out of date, we are offering remaining copies at the bargain price of
