b) Cross the road and take the path to the left of the Runt in Tun public house (this can be very muddy) into a field. Keep the hedge on your right and walk onto the gap ahead and cross diagonally to the stile in the far left hand corner. Keep on bearing right round trees to a stile in the next hedge, ahead into a field and cross into the next field. Continue along the right hand side of this field and go through the third gate on the right. Turn left until to come to the stile. There are sometimes horses in these fields but they re very quiet and good tempered. However if you have dogs and are uncertain about how they behave with livestock, pop them onto leads.

c) Climb the stile and go diagonally across the field on your right to the left hand corner. Go through the gap into the next field keeping the hedge on your right, and then after a short while cross diagonally into the far corner beyond a small pond.

d) Go over the stile to reach the five footpath crossing, turning immediately right through a wicket gate into Sapperton Wood. At the time of writing it is full of bluebells. When you reach the junction of the paths (signposted with a finger post) fork right, cross the track and continue on through the wood ignoring a left hand path. Drop down to a bridge and up steps into a field, Keep ahead and bear left at the end of the field onto a road. Turn right. This is Sicklehatch Lane and will lead you back to your starting point.Information by courtesy of The Ramblers and Heathfield and Waldron Parish Council (and tested by the Sussex Express!)
