Description

All the mapping you need to complete the 100 mile (160km) South Downs Way National Trail, between Eastbourne and Winchester. With easy walking on ancient trackways, the route features wooded areas, river valleys and attractive villages and is rich in natural, geological and historical interest. This booklet of Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer maps has been designed for convenient use on the trail. It shows the full and up-to-date line of the route along with the relevant extract from the OS Explorer map legend, and can be used when walking the trail in either direction. Conveniently sized for slipping into a jacket pocket or the top of a rucksack, it comes in a clear PVC sleeve. An accompanying Cicerone guidebook - The South Downs Way - describes the full route in both directions and includes lots of other practical and historical information, for those who prefer a written guide. The guidebook INCLUDES a copy of this map booklet.

Kev Reynolds:
A lifelong passion for the countryside in general, and mountains in particular, drives Kev's desire to share his sense of wonder and delight in the natural world through his writing, guiding, photography and lecturing. Spending several months every year among various high mountain regions researching guidebooks, makes him The Man with the World's Best Job; a title he aims to keep by remaining active for another 100 years at least. Kev has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Cicerone since the 1970s, producing 50 books, including guides to five major trekking regions of Nepal, and to numerous routes in the European Alps and Pyrenees, as well as walking guides for Kent, Sussex and the Cotswolds and he has several more books in the pipeline. His latest book, A Walk in the Clouds, is a collection of autobiographical short stories recording 50 years of mountain travel and adventures. He is also the contributing editor of the collaborative guide Trekking in the Himalaya. A frequent contributor to outdoor magazines, Kev also writes and illustrates brochures for national tourist authorities and travel companies. When not away in the mountains, Kev lives with his wife in a small cottage among what he calls 'the Kentish Alps', with unrestricted walking country on the doorstep. But he also travels throughout Britain during the winter months to share his love of the places he writes about through a series of lectures.
