Getting There

A round walk across and around Levin Down at Charlton in West Sussex. There is an interest of the chicken patrol and there are a couple of nice shire horses and some different countryside. You will need to contend with the usual ups and downs of the South Downs, but nothing too extreme. There are quite often sheep on the Down. You will need to negotiate some gates and stiles on the route. Allow 2 hours.

Charlton is on the Charlton Road between Singleton and East Dean. To reach Singleton take the A286 Chichester to Midhurst road. Singleton is some five and a half miles north of Chichester. Turn right at a sharp left-hand bend halfway through Singleton. As you enter Charlton, North Lane is immediately on the left. Turn left into it and the parking is immediately on the left. There is enough room for three cars. The latitude and longitude of the parking area is 50.910343,-0.738766 and the nearest postcode is PO18 0HU. The 99 bus service from Chichester to Petworth stops at Charlton. From the bus stop walk west towards Singleton for 120 metres, North Lane and the start of the walk are on the right.

Walking

An enjoyable walk and the benches en route make a nice place to stop and enjoy the surrounding views. The final 30 minutes of the walk were a little hit and miss as the 4th and final way point is a fair distance from the end of the walk. A half mile or so diversion had to be taken as the fields just after the uphill climb through some lovely bluebells in woods were occupied by bulls and large cattle all of whom seemed rather interested in us. Near the end of the walk after you've headed downhill and towards the houses, once at the houses look out for the fingerpoint sign between two houses on the left about halfway down the close. There are 2 garden fences either side of the path. Don't be put off by the bulls and the sketchy end of the walk as the 1st 75% of the walk was really enjoyable.

Lovely walk, amazing views, especially at the start. Could be a new favorite! It was a bit muddy but nothing that a pair of good boots couldn’t manage.

A lovely walk with gorgeous autumn colors (late November). It was quite muddy but still doable without wellies (except the very last bit before returning to the car park - we walked on the road instead).

Firstly, bring Tupperware! The walk is teeming with Hazelnuts and Blackberries! Secondly - this is not an ideal walk for Dog walkers. We encountered 4x Stiles with no way for dogs to pass so had to lift our 2x large greyhounds over every one! Even small dogs will need lifting over. Aside from the issues with the Stiles and dogs, this is a great walk with some amazing views

Fantastic walk - up there with one of my favourites. Well worded clear instructions. Was brilliant to see the chickens too! A perfect fix on the way back from a boozy weekend at Butlins.
