A good circular walk. It was a bit of a rainy day so we couldn't really see the harbour views at all!! At the stone trough we thought we'd have a sit and a drink but, at this time of year, it was covered in undergrowth so there was no way we could sit! Lovely views of the back of Stansted House that not many people get to see. Towards the end of the walk through a field we got to a stage by the paddock where the path was very overgrown and not very well used so be prepared to walk through some tall grass at this time of year Overall took us just over 2 hours

really pleasant, easy walk with lovely views

Lovely walk good views and different terrain. The pub is open only 11.30-14.30 during the day. Dog friendly although there is no water so will need to take some with you for yourself and any four legged friends.

This was an easy very varied walk. We particularly enjoyed the paths in Stoke Wood and the views as we reached the field near the sculptures. Although there was quite a lot of walking on quiet roads it was lovely to see places we have only driven past before from a different aspect. Thank you.

We really enjoyed this walk which has fantastic views and a lovely mixture of paths. As always the instructions were fantastic. Just a word of warning... the first footpath, after passing through the two kissing gates, was easy to find and to follow, but quite overgrown. We were glad we weren’t wearing shorts as there were a lot of nettles! Thank you.

Beautiful walk, very peaceful, lots of places to sit and just look for wildlife..very good walk.

A pleasant walk especially the Broadwalk through the woods. Around Funtington the fields were full of pigs meaning my dog has to be kept on her lead for long stretches of the walk. Some particularly ripe smells around the Pig farm! Overall a nice easy walk but a little too much time walking along the roads for my liking.

Lovely easy hike with good paths to follow. Some nice benches along the way to stop and admire the views.

A very pleasant walk. However the field opposite Stansted House was being ploughed up and it was difficult spotting the far end of the path. One field at the end of the walk was full of lambs but safe enough with the dog on a lead.

Great walk with coastal views across the bay. The Old House at Home pub has great beers and a wonderful garden. Serves good food as well

Very nice walk with good views. Some climbs and descents but not too hard. The paths were dry and the hardest part was the south downs way but only because there was no shade from the sun.

Lovely walk. Great instructions. We added it to the end of the West Marden loop walk to make the most of a beautiful day. Thank you.

Great walk, no mud, two mid walk pubs and pretty thatched cottages to see too! Had a stroll round Chichester afterwards, recommend this for a lovely day out!

Nice loop and great views. If you feel energetic there is an inner, shorter loop with a very steep gradient, that will add on a couple of Kms and 100m or so of quad burning climb!

Thank you. Lovely walk. The Church was open. Directions excellent as always. The field that we needed to cross at the end had recently been ploughed so the path couldn't be followed, but it was easy to return to the start via the alternative route.

There is a section of about 1 mile where you cross the A27, (nightmare!! not for the feinted hearted!). You then have to walk through factories/ industrial estate which is horrible before final getting to the canal. Definitely a walk of 2 halves with the begin and end being lovely and the middle being horrible

Loved this walk. Check tide times!! Highly recommend Old House at Home in Chidham for an ale break!

The church at up marden is well worth a visit. It's never been locked the times i visited, which is a fair few!

We enjoyed the walk up to St Roche's Hill with spectacular views but the return along Chalkpit Lane was relatively dull. It would have been more attractive to return the way we came.

A very interesting walk.

Good walk - 2nd half slightly muddy but not too bad. Decided to stop off for lunch at the Earl of March - very nice! Took us about an hour and 10 mins to get to the Earl Of March so a good halfway point. Thanks!

Great walk, thanks for adding it. Just the right amount of hills and relaxed walking. Absolutely stunning views in places. Walked it in April and fields full of rapeseed in flower, bluebells in the woods and wildlife galore.

Having seen the cathedral many times instead we opted to walk the North Walls instead. It's easily navigable on the map.

Lovely flat walk with a wonderful Sunday lunch at the pub in Dell Quay. A birthday treat 😁 4 March 2018

Lovely walk, good directions, only thing I would add is that there aren't any dog poo / rubbish bins on route, however plenty of places to let the dog off the lead!
