Notes and links

From Pevensey there is a link to the South Downs Way at Jevington. The 1066 Country Walk therefore creates a link between the South Downs Way (at Jevington) and the Saxon Shore Way (at Rye), so forming an essential part of the E9 European Coastal Path (Sentier Européen du Littoral). There are further links to Hastings and Bexhill.
