Major Route Alterations:

Following a landslip, a section of footpath has become dangerous at section 6.4 between Stroods & High Hurstwood and has been closed by East Sussex County Council.  A diversion for the Vanguard Way has been signposted by the County Council.

If walking from North to South follow the instructions given in the 5th edition, 2014 downloadable route directions.

If walking from South to North take the following route:

Section E, pages 7 & 8
E(6.7)  TR on Rd (Chillies Lane) for 20m and cross over to gate onto path through wood.  Path turns R & L, and then cross FB and in 30m go through gate into field.  Go ahead uphill to follow line of single trees, gradually bearing R to KG.  Follow R hand edge of field and locate KG onto Perrymans Lane.  Take care on lane which twists L and then R.  After 100m bear R around wide metal gate and go ahead on wide Tk through Quarry Wood.  As Tk bends L note old iron ore and clay workings (see notice) and cross stile to go up along R hand edge of field to rejoin VGW at E(6.5) d) at fingerpost below steps.

 

Substantial badger activity in Littleheath Woods (Section 1/K) has resulted in a short temporary diversion of the VGW near the playground.  Please observe the following route alterations:
