Robertsbridge to Etchingham

Walk no: 14

Length: 3 miles

A 3 mile linear walk from Robertsbridge rail station to Echtingham rail station in East Sussex forming the 14th stretch of the Sussex Hospices Trail. This fairly easy stroll is mainly through fields, with lovely views of the distinctive oak trees of the wooded valley of the River Rother. The return leg can be completed with a single 5 minute train journey.


This is the shortest and also one of the most rural of all the walks that make up the Sussex Hospices Trail. Underfoot you are walking on clay which can be muddy. There are a few stiles and there may be livestock in some of the fields. Allow 2 hours.
