Lewes to Saltdean

CW2 24 Lewes to Saltdean
Length: 15.5 km (9.6 miles). Toughness: 4/10

Catch the 9:47 from London Victoria (CJ 9:53) arrives Lewes 11:08. A day return to Lewes covers  the return from Brighton

Across the south downs to Rodmell for lunch and back over the downs to Saltdean. From Saltdean you can either catch the very frequent coastal bus service into Brighton, or alterrnatively extend the walk by 8.5km by continuing westwards along the coast into Brighton (the first 4km being a cliff walk). Then once past the Marina perhaps take the Volks railway to the Palace Pier.

Intend going.

The PDF for this walk is password protected. Is that deliberate?

I've just opened it with no problems?

Isaac Horrocks said...

Yes, opening it isn't a problem but try copying a section. I want to create a shortened version with just the walk and copying isn't allowed. On other PDFs here that I've tried it is allowed.

Could you try saving the pdf and then use an on-line pdf to Word converter to make your own Word doc and then edit as required? Bit long-winded though.

I've tried. Asks for the password.

If you look at the document properties you'll see that you can open and print the pdf, but other operations (like copying text) are not allowed without the password. The author has done this deliberately. We're sorry if this causes inconvenience to genuine users, but in the past other people and/or organisations have copied our work and presented it as their own.

Lovely downs walk in bright winter sunshine. The Abergavenny Arms was packed but we got a table and quick service - great nut roast! Then it was up over the downs for more stunning views. The scenery stood out in the crisp colours with trees silhouetted on the folds of hills. We walked on through the remote village of Telscombe, the suburbs of Saltdean highlighted by a grand art deco building, and stopped for tea at the cafe on the front before getting the bus to Brighton station. About 10 on the walk I think.It's a good winter walk because although the path from Lewes was a bit icy it was uphill, and there aren't any steep downhill parts.
