Length: 6.4 mi • Est. 3 h 5 m
A circular walk from the Black Jug in Horsham, West Sussex. The Black Jug is a great town pub centred around a large bar with wooden panelling, old furniture, bookcases and an airy enclosed courtyard. The walking route heads out through Horsham Park and the Warnham Court Estate to reach the nearby village of Warnham, before returning via arable farmland and ancient lanes. You'll have chance to see the impressive herd of red deer within Warnham Park, the 14th century church in Warnham plus plenty of wildlife along the way. The walk has several steady climbs and descents. The paths across the parkland and woodland can all get fairly muddy in winter an after periods of rain. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus 3 stiles. The stiles have wire fencing surrounds about a foot high, but most dogs should be able to hop over these. You will need to cross over a golf course so take care of any stray flying golf balls and allow the golfers to play their shots before you cross. You will also need to cross a dual carriageway at a designated (but unsignalled) crossing point so take particular care here. There are a couple of sections of road walking along country lanes so beware of any passing traffic. The walk passes through a deer park and a deer farm so take care around the deer with children and dogs. (The deer can become aggressive towards dogs during the rutting season from late September to early November and in May/June when there are young calves around). Allow 2.5 to 3 hours. Show more

Length: 9.3 mi • Est. 4 h 34 m
A linear walk from Horsham rail station to Billingshurst rail station in West Sussex, forming Part 22 of the Sussex Hospices Trail. This long distance walk takes in both the undulating countryside of the Sussex Weald and the market town of Horsham. On route you will pass the historic Christ Hospital, one of the oldest schools in England, walk along the scenic Downs Way Link and West Sussex Literary Trail and take in interesting estates and ancient woodland. The return leg can be completed with a single 10 minute train journey. The hospices of Sussex are dedicated to providing specialist end-of-life care. Friends of Sussex Hospices has worked with partners and supporters to create the Sussex Hospice Trail, a 200-mile long-distance path to support and raise awareness of the twelve hospice care providers that serve the adults and children of Sussex. The Weald is well known for its mud and after rain the trail can be heavy going in places. You will need to negotiate a number of stiles, kissing gates, narrow footbridges and footpaths, short sections of steps and cross one pedestrian level crossing. There are a few road crossings that need care when crossing and two short sections of road which are only accessible via grass and road side verge. The first stretch of the route takes you through the busy town of Horsham but this soon opens up into woodland and open fields. You are likely to come across livestock in some of the fields so take particular care with dogs. Allow 5 hours. Toilets are available at the rail stations at each end but there are a number of opportunities for toilet breaks and refreshments along the route, most notably Horsham Town centre and Barns Green for pubs and a very nice campsite café. Picnic spots can be found at many of the locations on route.Show more

Length: 2.7 mi • Est. 1 h 5 m
This is a beautiful circular walk in West Sussex, from the market town of Horsham, making its way alongside the River Arun before climbing Denne Hill and passing through woodland and farmland to return to the town. A lovely outing. The walk has a couple of steady climbs/descents and follows a range of woodland and farmland paths which can be muddy after wet weather and in winter. There are no stiles, just a few kissing gates to negotiate. One section of the walk passes through Denne Park where cattle are grazing so take care with dogs. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.
