Getting There

A circular walk in West Sussex through woodland and open downland with expansive views. This is a classic walk, passing a pub deep in the woods which holds a lot of history for locals of a certain age. The walk also passes a poignant memorial to a young German pilot and Telegraph House, a reminder of an earlier conflict. There are no stiles on this walk and no cattle, but you will need to negotiate some gates and there is a possibility that sheep may be encountered. There are a couple of short, moderately steep sections in the walk. Allow 2 hours.

The walk is off of the B2141 Lavant to Petersfield Road some 5.3 miles from Lavant. From Lavant travel north on the A286 Midhurst Road. After leaving Lavant going north towards Midhurst, turn left after 350 metres onto the B2141 Petersfield Road. After 4.5 miles on a left-hand bend, look out for a lane on the right with a cul-de-sac sign. The latitude and longitude for this point is 50.936870,-0.843887. There is parking on the grass at the top of the lane. Approximate post code PO18 9JY.
