pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Nevill Crest and Gun in Eridge Green, East Sussex. The Nevill Crest and Gun is more than 500 years old and takes its name from the Nevill family, the Earls of Abergavenny, on whose estate the pub was built. The walking route follows a loop through the two adjoining nature reserves: Eridge Rocks and Broadwater Warren. The woodland walk is really beautiful with mixed woodland, sandstone outcrops and open heath being home to a wide range of birds, dormice and Exmoor ponies. The route has several climbs and descents throughout and the woodland and heath paths can get very muddy in winter and after wet weather so good boots are recommended. There are no stiles and three kissing gates to negotiate. Dogs are welcome in the nature reserves but must be kept on leads in some parts and kept to the paths in the remaining areas. The open heath is grazed by Exmoor ponies. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours.

Fantastic, quiet woodland walk, I started in the nature reserve car park, so avoided all the road sections. Will be adding this as a firm favourite.
