Third Walk

Wadhurst Figure of Eight
Length: 17.6 km (10.9 miles). Toughness: 4/10
T=swc.5.d
Catch the 9:49 from London Cannon Street (London Bridge 9:54) arrives Wadhurst 10:47.

The Wadhurst Figure of Eight walk combines CW2, Walk 18a Wadhurst Circular Short Walk with SWC 5 Wadhurst via Bewl Water walk to create a Wadhurst Figure of Eight walk (ie having both lunch and tea in Wadhurst) offering a comprehensive introduction to the different types of scenery around the village. This walk is 7km (4.3 miles) in the morning and 7.4km (4.6 miles) from lunch to tea, which with a further 3.2km (2 miles) to the station gives a total walk length of 17.6km (10.9 miles). Or if you use the long walk option, it is 9.7km (6 miles) from lunch to tea, giving a total walk length of 19.9km (12.3 miles).

Aside from the main headline walk, there are two longer options, plus the longer Figure of 8 walk (mentioned above) - all detailed below. For the Robertsbridge ending, buy a day return to Robertsbridge. Suggested lunch stop for the long walk ending at Robertsbridge is the Woodpecker CafĂ© (18km from the end of the walk - The Visitors centre in the text [L3])
