The Horns Lodge Pub Walk

This walk is designed to be a short introduction to some of the most attractive countryside in the Low Weald.  It is also designed so that you can take the bus from Lewes, do the walk, and get the next bus back, with perhaps a short break in the Horns Lodge if you are lucky. If you miss the bus you can spend the time in the pub, or even stay the night.  The pub is highly recommended if you have the time.
