Try one of the short walks around East Sussex put together by TCV, a national conservation charity that supports people and communities to connect with and improve green spaces.

The project was made possible by a grant from Mind as part of a package of Coronavirus response projects using the outdoors to help people to improve mental health resilience during these difficult times.

Many of the walks are accessible from a nearby station in Rother, Wealden and Lewes districts such as Battle, Hastings, Robertsbridge, Rye, St Leonards, Winchelsea and Polegate.

Over one hundred short walk maps to help you to connect with nature!

Walking is one of the easiest ways to build fitness and boost mental health. What’s more, if you take time to notice nature, the benefits are even greater!

Enjoy awe-inspiring views or the wonder of tiny wildflowers. Take a gentle woodland stroll and touch the trees. Meander through a park, linger at a lake. Stride into the countryside. Listen to the birds. Smell the grass, crunch the leaves, breathe deep the fresh air.

Nature walks are a great way to make the most of the beauty around us and feel better within ourselves.

But we noticed that a lot of walking resources are for quite long walks, more suited for people who are already strong or experienced walkers. So we decided to create this collection – one, two and three mile walks around local parks, woods, nature reserves and rural footpaths.

They are ideal for people who do not fancy a massive hike and like to know it is a distance they can manage in a time that suits them. They are great for people who want to get into walking gradually and like to know what to expect and if they need to bring sandwiches. And they are fab for families with small children with little legs who need a shorter route.

Every walk here has been walked and checked and measured. Each has a simple map and a selection of photos to give you an idea. You can print the map or follow on your phone (see below), or you might find that the pictures just inspire you to visit and take your own route.
