Getting There

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.

The walk starts from the end of the Causeway in Horsham by the entrance to St Mary's Church. By car: The nearest parking is in The Forum multi-storey car park on Blackhorse Way. The fee is £3 Mon-Sat for up to 4hrs and free on Sundays and Bank Holidays (correct Oct 2015). Approximate post code RH12 1NU. From the car park, turn right along Blackhorse Way and then at the end turn right to reach the Causeway. St Mary's Church is at the end of the Causeway. By train: Horsham rail station is about three quarters of a mile from the starting point (a 15 minute walk). From the station, follow North Street towards the town centre and, by the Black Jug, fork right to follow the pedestrian walkway under the main road. Keep ahead along South Street, turn left into East Street, continue through the Market Square and you will reach the Causeway. St Mary's Church is at the end of the Causeway.

First to Review

I tried this route one evening but despite living in Horsham all my life I had gone wrong 3 times in the first mile and then gave up as I couldn’t find the trail I was supposed to be on
