A lovely, gentle walk which follows the flat coastline from Eastbourne to Pevensey Bay then inland to Pevensey Castle.
START OF WALK: Drove to Pevensey Castle, and parked the car in the Pevensey Castle Pay & Display car park. Walked to Wallsend Lane and caught Stagecoach bus number 99 to Eastbourne (bus times every 20mins).
WEATHER: 5C Cold, sunshine, windy day
Walked from Terminus Road in Eastbourne town centre towards seafront and around the back of the Grand Hotel (which we love) so we could walk past the front, before heading down to the South Downs Way promenade, via the bandstand and towards the Eastbourne Pier for an investigative look at the burnt down section, and then headed east along the coastline to Pevensey Bay and Castle.
WHERE TO GET THE WALK DETAILS
I checked the SWC Walk 66 – Eastbourne to Hastings, via Pevensey, Cooden Beach and Bexhill for directions, took note of, and checked google maps for tricky bits, and printed the map, for reference on the walk. This is an easy, flat walk, with some shingle walking for approx. 1.5 miles heading into Pevensey Bay.
