Can only be done at low tide and when you’ve had some dry weather. I did it on a wet October day and it was a mud bath ! There is actually quite a dangerous point on the northbound path when you have to turn right off the coastal path and head eastward back towards Chidham. You have to cross over a ditch where there are no steps or bridge , just a mudslide down into the ditch and another one out. Lose your footing there and at best you’ll get a very muddy bath at worse you could break a limb. On a warm summers day ...lovely, on a wet winters day just unpleasant! There is what seems to be a lovely dog friendly pub at the start/finish called the Old House at Home, sadly me and the pooch were so muddy and wet by the end of the walk I felt I really couldn’t inflict ourselves on their hospitality
