Please note There are some stiles on this walk.
1 Leave the car park, walking up the hill towards the house. Turn left at the top and head along the path. Head through the gate and head left, following the path along the edge of a small wood. Continue down the hill, and through the gate. Turn left, then follow the path which heads to the reservoir. Continue on, following the High Weald Landscape Trail.
2 Join the Sussex Border Path, and go on the path, keeping the reservoir to your left. Continue on, and onto the road. Reach the entrance to Stone Hill House and cross the road. Continue on the path, going through the woods. Head up the bank and cross the Bluebell railway line.
3 Reach the lane here and turn right to reach a gate. Continue on the lane until you see a gap in the hedge to your right with a finger post. Go through this gap and follow around the edge of the field, with the woods kept to your left. When you reach the end of the field, turn left onto a track and then onto Vowells Lane. To your right will be Kingscote Station, which is part of the Bluebell railway line. When you have finished visiting the station, head back the way you walked previously.
4 Go under the railway bridge and head on the track through the farm buildings. Go over a bridge and follow the track around to the right. You will meet up with an earlier part of the walk, where you should retrace your steps back to the car park.
