'The Forest Way is a linear Country Park providing walking, cycling, horse riding and the quiet enjoyment of the countryside. It runs for around 16 km from East Grinstead to Groombridge. Major improvements to the track surface in 2002 led to its inclusion in the Sustrans National Cycle Network. To the west of East Grinstead, the cycle route continues as the Worth Way along the disused section of line to Three Bridges. In addition, there are as yet unrealised plans to link the Forest Way from Groombridge with the Cuckoo Trail, another trail following the route of a disused railway line, which runs from Heathfield to Hampden Park near Eastbourne.

'This is a lovely cliff top walk starting at the car park near Fairlight Coastguard Station (CS). Simply walk down the track to the CS, turn right onto the well marked coastal path and enjoy the views. If in doubt of the route, keep the sea to your left. To return, simply follow the outward route. And don’t forget, if you only do one way you’ll need some form of transport to get back to Fairlight if you park there!'

'For many people Horsham's greatest amenity is its easily accessible countryside. There can't be many towns this size where you can set out from the shopping centre and be in open country within five minutes. We can even circumnavigate Horsham on the Riverside Walk, and if we choose to walk across town instead we can do so via any number of parks, green spaces and traffic-free paths. To celebrate this we're publishing some of our favourite walks ...'

The walks featured focus mainly on walks up to a day long and are drawn from different sources on the web.

'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.'
