Rarely on the borderline itself, this cross county route, running from north to south passes the large Weir Wood Reservoir, Shapthorne, Horsted Keynes, over the Low Weald, Ditchling, over the South Downs to the north of Brighton then turning west before the descent into Portslade. This route is covered in the out-of-print Sussex Border Path publication but is waymarked and on OS mapping as part of the Sussex Border Path.
