Summary: The Wealdway is a long distance footpath in south-east England which makes its way through three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and which connects the Thames Estuary with the English Channel through the Weald of Kent and Sussex. The Weald Way crosses chalk downlands, passes through river valleys and woodland (including Ashdown Forest) and across farmland. It links the North Downs Way at Trottiscliffe with the South Downs Way near to Eastbourne. There are also connections with other long distance routes including the Medway Valley Walk, Sussex Border Path and Diamond Way and the Greensand, Saxon Shore and Vanguard Ways. Some of the towns and villages visited on the route, from the beginning in Gravesend, include Sole Street, Vigo Village, Wrotham Heath, Platt, West Peckham, Tonbridge, Bidborough, Speldhurst, Fordcombe, Withyham, Fairwarp, Uckfield, East Hoathly and Hailsham before reaching the finish in Eastbourne.
