A trail that passes through Sussex has been named among the 15 greatest walks in Britain, according to The Telegraph.

South Downs Way, which is mostly set in the county and finishes at Eastbourne was included on the list.

The list was created to try and pick the best walks in Britain that were also gargantuan in length.

The publication wrote: "But that is what we have tried to do here, choosing something for everyone, whether your idea of a great walk takes two weeks or a long weekend; whether you want fantastic scenery or bags of cultural interest; a good quality path, fewer people to contend with, or simply a route that is well marked and easy to follow."

What did The Telegraph say about South Downs Way?

The South Downs way walk starts at Winchester in Hampshire before travelling into Sussex and finishing up at Eastbourne.

You'll need to set aside a decent amount of time for it as the 100-mile-long trail should take around 7-10 days to complete.

The Telegraph writes: "It’s thought humans have been walking the safer, drier uplands of the South Downs for around 8,000 years; there’s certainly plenty of manmade evidence here, from Iron Age Cissbury to Ring, and the Roman’s Bignor Villa to the Long Man of Wilmington chalk figure.

"The South Downs Way National Trail itself was opened in 1972. It sits almost entirely within the South Downs National Park, following the grassy chalk ridge to the sea, offering fine views throughout and good going underfoot.

"There are charming villages en route – Alfriston, Amberley, Rodmell, Litlington – though they generally require a hoik down from the ridge to reach, and a hoik back up again to continue.

"Being in the populous South East, transport links are excellent but the route can get busy, especially as it’s open to cyclists and horse riders too."

The best viewing point of the walk is said to be Ditching Beacon, which at 248m is also East Sussex’s highest point.
