FIFTEEN free walks in the South Downs are on offer as part of a week promoting green travel.

The South Downs Society – the National Park Society for the South Downs – is holding its Green Travel Walks Week from September 17 to 24.

They take in some of the most secret spots in the park and all are accessible by bus and train so walkers can leave their cars behind.

Society director Jacquetta Fewster said: ‘The South Downs is very beautiful, but in some places the noise of the traffic drowns out the sound of the birds and the wind in the trees.

‘Green Travel Walks Week is all about enjoying the National Park without the din and pollution and congestion caused by cars.

‘So why not get on a train or a bus, drink in the view of the Downs, and then explore the National Park on foot with the South Downs Society?’
