Am wondering how far this walk would be given we'll be with 2 young kids? Was thinking of walking along the river from railway land. Anyone guesstimate how far it is? Cheers

Depending on how old the kids are, allow 2-3 hours

2 - 3 hours? Are they crawling? It's a hour or so along the river. 3 hours will get you to Newhaven with time to spare

make sure you remember to turn up the track at the right time or you'll end up in Southease

Drone is right, it is at least that far, but don't try and do a round route back via the C7 it is far to dangerous, get the bus (123) back from the pub or come back along the river. Check the tide times to, it can get quite high, but on a sunny day it is beautiful out there-the river is turquiose.

It's a far nicer walk to go via Kingston Ridge, along the top of the downs and down into Rodmell. Lovely views and much more interesting. The river walk is very samey and gets a bit dull imo.
It was also a lot longer than I thought, possibly due to meanders but possibly because I got bored with it.

Thanks all for your responses. In the end we chickened out and walked to Offham! Carrying a 2 yr old and my partner the 6 wk old progress was slow and VERY muddy! Still, a beautiful walk. The usual favourite (to glynde) isn't an option with 2! Thanks again.
