Rye – Leasam Hill 2.4m

Glorious views along this hilly walk, make sure you keep stopping to look back.

This route starts in Gibbet Marsh car park and then heads along the road for a short way; just past the bridge there is a step into a meandering riverside path. The paths up the hill are really quite steep and there is a serious set of steps at one point. But wow, the views.

Parking: pay and display car park. Public transport: nearby bus stops; 0.25 mile walk from Rye Station.

Health walks: if you would like to join a group walk from here, our Rye Health Walk meets in this car park every Monday morning just before 10am. It’s a completely free one hour walk, no need to book, just pop along.
