Roman road walk is top tip
Bookmark and Share
Those who love to put on their walking boots and enjoy new paths could try some routes in the South Downs National Park, including one on an old Roman road near the village of Slindon in West Sussex.

Listed as walk of the week by the Daily Telegraph, it climbs out of the village onto the Slindon Estate, which is owned by the national Trust, following the "glorious stretch" provided by the ancient imperial highway.

A folly on the route is described as a highlight, as are the views of the coast, the Isle of Wight and Chichester Cathedral's spire.

Obtaining Ordnance Survey maps of the national park may be a priority for those wanting to discover the area, with this special status having only come into effect last year.

The South Downs is the most recent national park in the UK and one of four coming into being in the past decade, following Loch Lomond and the Trossachs (2002), the Cairngorms in 2003 and the New Forest in 2005.
