From Fontwell the rural and coastal county of
Sussex can be accessed. The county is now divided into East and
West Sussex and is bounded on the north by Surrey, east by Kent,
south by the English Channel, and west by Hampshire. It is an
area with a fertile coastal plain along which are scattered numerous
resort towns including Hastings, Bexhill, Eastbourne, Seaford,
Brighton, Shoreham-by-Sea, Worthing, Littlehampton and Bognor.
The South Downs Way runs along the grassy ridge of the South
Downs, giving splendid views over the countryside and the coast
over the chalk cliffs of Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters.
