The Way is 100 miles long in total.

We began walking the South Downs Way at Easter 2010. We started from Winchester on Good Friday, and arrived at Amberley at the end of Easter Monday. We used Bed & Breakfast accommodation; carrying our own clothes and so on. We bought packed lunches from B&Bs, and ate out all the time. We aimed to walk 15 miles per day (including getting to and from the B&B).

From Amberley, the rest of the walk was done in odd days, returning to our home in Brighton each night, until we reached Falmer. From Falmer, we walked to Alfriston where we staid the night, before going on to Eastbourne. We arrived at Eastbourne (completing the path) on Sunday 1 August.
