Dymchurch to Didcot Robust Ramble

E Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey, W Berkshire, W Sussex

359 km / 223 miles
The Dymchurch to Didcot Robust Ramble has been created by Colin Bridge, the Local Footpaths Officer for the Ramblers' Association in Thanet. It stretches for over 220 miles from the south east corner of Kent, passing through Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire to finish in Oxfordshire. In the main, the route follows minor footpaths wherever possible.
The creator has drawn up 48 sections for the route and there is an alternative return for each section making it possible to undertake the sections as a daisy-chain series of day walks, with minimal route overlap.
Here only the east-west option is shown and the online mapping relates only to this direction.
The accompanying website includes comprehensive route descriptions and sketch maps which cover both directions.
