A 7 mile (11km) circular walk from the village of Ticehurst in East Sussex. The route takes in stretches of the surrounding open countryside as well as a section of the path around Bewl Water, the largest area of open water in the South East. This walk is one of a collection published through a collaboration between iFootpath and East Sussex County Council.

The terrain is fairly easy but there are some steady gradients. The paths take you along quiet country lanes, farm tracks and stretches through woodland, crop fields and grass pastures (some of which can be muddy). You will need to negotiate some gates, steps and footbridges plus 12 wooden fence stiles (some of which dogs will need a lift over). You are likely to be sharing some of the fields with livestock. The route crosses a golf course so be careful to watch for stray flying golf balls at this point. Allow 3.5 hours.

Ticehurst is located on the B2099, about 4 miles east of Wadhurst. The walk starts and finishes at The Square in the centre of Ticehurst. There is a village car park (signed from the village centre) just a short way along Pickforde Lane. Approximate post code TN5 7BL.
