Sussex Border Path
It is often possible to use local bus and train services as a means of returning to the starting point if you plan to tackle the walk in daily stages over a longer period. Buses in rural area can be few and far between. In many instances the services are supported by the County Council and put out to tender for operation. This means that, while the services are reliable, the operators may change at intervals.
The Internet is undoubtedly the best source of up to date information on buses and trains. Most public libraries can now provide access.
Transport Direct one of the most versatile sites.
Traveline is area based and also accessible by phone on 0871 200 22 33
National Rail Enquires & 08457 484950 for train travel.
