A 2 mile circular pub walk from The Foresters Arms in Fairwarp. A lovely walk across the picturesque Ashdown Forest. Classic heathland paths, wooded tracks and peaceful lanes combine to produce an undulating, enjoyable ramble with great views.

The walk has several slopes throughout and follows a mixture of stone tracks and woodland paths, some of which can be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles. Approximate time 70-90 minutes.

The walk starts and finishes at The Foresters Arms on High Street in Fairwarp. Fairwarp can be found just off the B2026 north of Uckfield. Approximate post code TN22 3BP.
