Normans Bay to West St Leonards

Walk no: 10

Length: 8 miles

An 8 mile linear walk from Normans Bay rail station to West St Leonards rail station in East Sussex, forming the 10th stretch of the Sussex Hospices Trail. You will walk through quiet countryside, around a golf course and along the bustling promenade of Bexhill taking in some fantastic views of the coast.


The route is largely flat aside from a short climb up ‘Galley Hill’ and although the majority of it is on tarmac the first section is through fields which can get muddy. These fields may be holding livestock so take particular care with dogs. There are also some very tight v-shaped stiles to squeeze over so those with large dogs may struggle. Several opportunities for facilities and refreshments exist on the route. Allow 4 hours.
