A 7km (4.3 mile) circular walk from Battle rail station in East Sussex. The walk performs a simple loop through nearby woodland, giving you chance to escape the buzz of the town. This walk is one of a collection published through a collaboration between iFootpath and East Sussex County Council.

The terrain is relatively easy, although there are some hilly sections and some of the woodland paths can be very muddy. There are no stiles on route, but you will need to negotiate a footbridge, a single gate and a tight staggered barrier. Some of the paths are narrow and are prone to becoming overgrown. There is one section along a road which has only a grass verge rather than a pavement so take care of traffic here. As with all woodland walks, the iFootpath App’s live GPS map will be the best tool for navigation. Allow 2 hours.

The walk starts and finishes at Battle rail station, making it ideal for arriving by public transport. If you are coming by car, the rail station has its own car park along the length of the access road. Approximate post code TN33 0DE.
