It's a walk from the cathedral city of Chichester which follows a stretch of the Centurion Way surfaced path, a former railway, to reach the pretty village of East Lavant with its cricket pitch, pub and clear-flowing river. The return leg follows quiet tracks, lanes, parks and roads to return back into the bustling city centre where there are plenty of ways to while away the rest of your day. The walk follows surfaced paths for the vast majority of the way, with just two sections along grass. There are no stiles or kissing gates on route, but you will need to negotiate one single gate, some staggered barriers and ramps. The outward leg would be suitable for pushchairs and mobility buggies so the walk can be adjusted to be a ‘there and back’ easy access route. One short part of the return leg follows the edge of a road so take particular care on this stretch. Another part of the return leg is quite narrow so can be prone to being a little overgrown. Allow 3 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, there are several options. You could stock up on picnic supplies in Chichester and enjoy these in the circular grass meadow half way round, there are a couple of pubs half way round or you will be spoilt for choice with cafes, pubs and restaurants in the centre of Chichester at the end of the walk.

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!

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!

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