An easy walk with one gentle descent visiting the historic Downland village of Ditchling and the beautifully restored working mill,  Oldland Mill.  There are fine views towards the ridge of the South Downs. Some sections can be muddy in winter and after rain.

The walk is packed with refreshment possibilities. In Ditchling,  Ditchling Tea Rooms makes a good stop as do The Bull and The White Horse, whilst the Greyhound and Thatched Inn in Keymer offer the best choice of several in Hassocks and Keymer.

This is Walk 3 of the ‘Circular Walks Around Hassocks’ series of walks by the Hassocks Community Partnership.

At the start of the walk, a less urban route is to take the lane on the left hand side of Adastra Park (Adastra Grounds), and which joins Grand Avenue further up.
