Martlet on green plaques or wooden signposts (partial)Sussex Border Path

220 km / 137 miles

E Sussex, Hants, Kent, Surrey, W Sussex
The route follows paths approximating to the Sussex border with Hampshire, Surrey and Kent, first making a 9-mile circuit around Thorney Island and then crossing the South Downs to South Harting and Liphook before heading to Gospel Green, Rudgwick, Gatwick and East Grinstead.

Here the waymarked Mid Sussex Link (33 miles and on OS mapping) branches off south along the line of the administrative boundary between East and West Sussex. The main Border Path heads through Ashurst, Wadhurst and Bodiam. Details of the 33-miles Mid Sussex Link section are included in the publication as well as details of completing the route in a series of single day walks. Although the publication is out of print the full route is shown on OS mapping and is partially waymarked.

The waymarked Worth Way (7 miles and on OS mapping) is partly coincident with the Path as is the waymarked Forest Way (10 miles and on OS mapping) and the link between them at East Grinstead.

Publication now out of print, but the route is marked on OS mapping and is supported by the local authority.
