*Chailey Common Nature Reserve
Size (acreage)450

'Chailey Common is one of the largest heathland commons in the South of England, covering 450 acres and was designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 1966. It has also been made a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its heathland plants and diverse insect and bird communities ... Chailey Common is open access land, but to minimise disturbance to wildlife it is better to keep to the footpaths. Leaflets on self-guided walks around the Common are available from East Sussex County Council ... '

Ringmer to Berwick Path
Distance (miles)8

'A traverse of the lonely Laughton levels.  Savour the joys of solitude and a surprising variety of scenery ... This is a walk of the pastoral, of villages and farms and quiet pleasures.  In walking it you will be helping to keep some less well used paths free of overgrowth.  For most of the walk you are unlikely to meet another walker.'
