This is the first guide to walking the Downs Link, a 37-mile trail that links the North Downs Way to the South Downs Way, continuing beyond to the coast where it ends at Shoreham-by-Sea. The Downs Link is an excellent trail for a long weekend walk, or for walkers seeking to do a first long-distance trail.

More than just a walking travelogue or memoirs of a walking holiday, this book contains Holly’s reflections on walking the Downs Link, including lessons learned and practical information to help you plan your Downs Link hiking adventure. It includes a suggested packing list, gear recommendations, and other useful tips, such as when to walk the trail, where to stay, and how much you’ll need to budget. It also includes tips on how to access the trail, and how to walk it in either direction.
