Part of Brighton and Hove Council’s excellent  ‘Downs on Your Doorstep’ series of leaflets, this leaflet details walking options for exploring the Downs east  of Brighton including the undercliff walk between Brighton Marina and Rottingdean or Saltdean, and inland over the Downs.

Balsdean Church

You can pass the seaside village of Rottingdean where Rudyard Kipling once lived (visit Kipling Gardens for real peace and tranquility), the famous Roedean School, the 11th century  St Wulfran’s Church nestling in the Downs in Ovingdean, and what little is left of the lost village of Balsdean (used as target practice by the military during the Second World War).
