Local Guided Walks

The Discovering Sussex – Summer 2019 – Programme of Guided Walks is now available.

DISCOVERING SUSSEX SUMMER 2019

As well as leading guided walks in the South Downs National Park we also publish walks in newspapers and magazines and have been instrumental in creating and writing the guidebooks for two delightful long distance trails, both of which appear on the O.S.
Landranger and Explorer maps – The West Sussex Literary Trail and The New Lipchis Way.

Footprints also organise walks outside the locality. Because these normally involve coach travel to and from the walking destination they do incur costs and booking is essential.

More information on our forthcoming guided walks can be found below.
