Friston Forest & The Long Man


A really interesting walk that takes in a working forest, a 13th century church and a mysterious chalk carving. This walk takes in lots of interesting things between Exceat and Alfriston that the South Downs Way misses out. Terrain can be a bit uneven and there will be a few hills and stiles to negotiate on the way.

Alfriston has pubs, cafes, toilets etc and to get back to the start point – you can follow the South Downs Way (coastal route), Cuckmere Riverside path or just get the Cuckmere Valley Ramblerbus!

Meet at Seven Sisters Country Park Visitor Centre.
