Major Route Alterations:

The latest editions of the North-South and South-North guides include new routes:
Sections 3 and 4 (north-south) or G and H (south-north) now go via Crouch House Green (near Edenbridge) instead of Haxted Mill.
Section 6 (north-south) or section E (south-north) now goes via Quarry Wood & Perryman's Lane (avoiding a landslip north of High Hurstwood).


Any other major alterations will be added here if and when necessary during the currency of the latest editions.


At 10.1e (north-south) & A(10.3a) (south-north), a substantial landslip has occurred beside the beach at Cuckmere Haven, and it is not currently possible to continue along the VGW past the Cable Hut.  It is still possible to walk down as far as the landslip to see the beach but you will then have to retrace your steps for 70m to continue across grass.  The beach can still currently be reached by clambering a short distance down boulders, but this too may be closed while repairs are being done.
