Arlington, East Sussex, BN26 6TF


Pay and display. £1 for up to 2 hours.



Circular route 1.75 km. 


All day, every day.

From the car park, turn left on the footpath in front of you and  follow the numbered way-marker posts. Each numbered post relates to information on the map (available from the car park). The path remains close to the reservoir for the duration of the walk, providing great views across the water.

The ground between way-marks 7-8 can get quite muddy and is narrow in places. We suggest that visitors with a pushchair/wheelchair turn around and retrace their steps when they reach the dam wall (way-mark 6).

Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a lead at all times. Please pick up after them.

A kiosk in the car park serves hot and cold drinks and homemade cakes. Toilets are also located in the car park.
