Circular walk on the Downs near Brighton from Pyecombe on the A23. Once away from the road, the walk passes through woods and fine open downland, taking in Newtimber Hill, Saddlescombe Farm and the southern slopes of Devil’s Dyke. Saddlescombe Farm is a National Trust owned hidden hamlet in the Downs with 1000 years of history. Pop by the seasonal Hiker’s Rest on the farm for tea and cake, before moving on back to Pyecombe, where you can enjoy a pint and a Pizza in the Plough.
