I guess by Sussex you mean the westerly parts of West Sussex. I live
in the NE corner, so that's not in my usual territory. But my Finished
Walks binder does include 6 short walks I did with a friend from
Hampshire, when we met at some mid-way pub. Not sure if that's the
sort of stuff you want, but FWIW I've converted them to MMO files and
zipped them into Botty-6SussexWalks.zip (107 KB) at
The list includes:
Rowhook, circular pub-based (Chequers Inn), duration 2:33, 5.9 miles,
Offham, circular pub-based (Black Rabbit Inn), duration 3:021, 7.4
miles, 2.4 mph
Ashurst, circular pub-based, duration 2:51, 6.2 miles, 2.2 mph
Storrington, circular pub-based (Crown Inn), duration 2:46, 6.6 miles,
Arundel Park/Offham, circular pub-based (Black Rabbit Inn), duration
2:47, 5.7 miles, 2.1 mph
Nuthurst, circular pub-based, duration 1:41, 4.3 miles, 2.6 mph
Have you tried Walking World?
Your Mem-Map should have (or entitle you to download) the full index
of some 2,500 walking routes, including a fair number in the counties
you mention. If you can't find the 1.5 MB MMO index, email me.- Hide quoted text -

Real trouble getting hold of you, sent two emails and tried to make
contact through the thread.
Here's a copy of the email:
I'm afraid I've had some trouble getting back to you. I emailed back
to you on the day you kindly sent the files using 'Reply to Author' on
the thread. After seeing your message this morning, obviously
indicating that you hadn't received that message, I added what I
thought would be a thread expressing my thanks again, using 'Reply'. I
don't know if this will come up on the thread next time something is
published, but I couldn't see it tonight, so I googled you to try to
get your email address, I hope you don't mind me emailing to this
Anyway, let's hope you receive this grateful email successfully.
Many thanks indeed for taking the trouble to put together the .mmo
files for someone you've never met, it was terribly kind of you, and
I'm particularly sorry that it appeared to you that I hadn't had the
decency to respond. I'm glad you put up the second message this
morning, as I'd have otherwise thought my first email had got through,
and am pleased to have another chance to thank you. I just hope there
aren't too many Terry Pinnell's living in East Grinstead!
Unfortunately I couldn't get the Speedyshare address to work, it
seemed to only want to upload files, maybe I'm just being incompetent
- my attempts to contact you certainly bear that out. I don't know if
you could email the file as an attachment - a lot to ask as you must
have gained the impression that I am an ungrateful so and so.
I've now collected about fifty walks from a few different sources,
some I created myself, some from the Walking World site you mentioned,
and a number from a website I found with walks in the New Forest. Most
are Hampshire and Dorset, but some in the West Country too. If you'd
like these I can email them all to you. I only have one in Sussex,
Seven Sisters, which I'll attach to this email.
Apologies again for my apparent rudeness.
