Some sample walks on archaeology and history..... Walks of 2.5 hours are morning, afternoon or evening walks; 5 hour walks assume a start at say 10.30am packed lunch - and a finish between 3 and 4pm. Please note that the longer walks can be cut down to make shorter evening/half-day walks – with slight adjustments to the itinerary. Other walks are available so if you can’t find what suits, please contact me. (For instance I can provide guided tours of the 1066 country – Battle Abbey and the site of the battle of Hastings, Pevensey Castle, and the towns of Rye and Hastings). I can do any customised walk to accommodate your party. 1. Jevington and Combe Hill (East Sussex) – Neolithic causewayed camp, barrows, village, church and field system – approx 5 hours 2.

Selborne – Priory and Village – home of naturalist Gilbert White – approx 2.5 hours Note that all walks of 5 hours duration assume participants bring a packed lunch. I try and ensure that on all walks there is at least one ‘comfort stop’. Occasionally this might be in a pub or cafe, when there are no other public conveniences. None of the walks require paid admission to any building or monument. Some walks involve moderate climbs and descents – essentially like short stretches of the South Downs Way. Appropriate footwear and clothing required. Walking is done at a measured, enjoyable pace – I don’t do forced marches! We want to relax and enjoy the walk – that’s the most important thing!
