New "Towns & Downs Wanderer" bus service links the South Downs Way

11th June 2014

A great new rural bus service is operating this summer connecting previously inaccessible locations along the South Downs Way to the public transport network.

The new route runs between Jack & Jill Windmills, Near Clayton to Newhaven calling at Ditchling, Plumpton, Offham, Lewes, Firle, Southease and Denton. This great new service meets the SDW at Jack & Jill, Firle Beacon and Southease. It will initially run Sundays and Bank holidays until 28th September. This is the first time a bus service has met the SDW at Firle Beacon car park and allows people to enjoy great linear walks along the SDW and get back to their starting point. Alternatively you could catch the bus from the SDW at Jack & Jill or Firle Beacon to deliver you down to the pub and then catch another bus back up to continue your journey.

The service has funding for the next 2 years, but it is important that people use it if they don't want to loose it!
