Views from the South Downs and a visit to the village of Poynings on this linear walk from the Devil's Dyke. There are bus services to Brighton from both ends of the trail making this walk a perfect day out from the city.

Take the no.77 to Devil's Dyke for a two mile walk on hill paths, via Poynings, down to Newtimber (roundabout) on the A281. From there catch the Stagecoach/Compass Bus no.17 back to Brighton.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 32 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 143 calories will be burnt.
