    Echoes of the past are everywhere on this stage, which crosses the quirky bridge used for the Downs Link’s logo.Before you leave Rudgwick, it is worth a trip to the top of the village to see Holy Trinity Church, a beautiful building that dates to the 13th century.After a loop of the village, the trail descends to the River Arun, where you find the unusual Double Bridge. This former railway bridge from the mid-19th century had to effectively be built twice—one on top of the other—after bosses decided the first bridge was too steep for trains. The bridge is the logo of the Downs Link and appears on the signs directing you.The trail continues along former railway lines past old platforms and stations; skirting around Slinfold, through Southwater Country Park, and finishing in the village of Partridge Green.Partridge Green has a few options for accommodation and food and drink, as well as a shop.
