Getting There

A circular walk from the downland village of Slindon in West Sussex. Nestling in the foothills of the South Downs, Slindon is charming and unspoilt, its brick and flint houses surrounded by beech woods, farms and open downland. The walking route heads north through the village to reach Nore Hill, with its beautiful woodland and impressive folly. There are bluebells to enjoy in the Spring, plenty of wildlife and great views out to the south coast. The Forge, the community cafe and shop, provides the perfect place for refreshments before or after your walk. The walk follows a mixture of village pavements and woodland/farm tracks, the latter of which can be quite muddy after periods of rain. The route includes several climbs and descents throughout. There are no stiles or gates to negotiate. A couple of sections follow the edge of quiet roads so take care of any traffic. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

Slindon is a small village which is located about 6 miles east of Chichester and 2 miles west of Arundel in West Sussex. The village is accessed from the A29, close to its junction with the A27. The walk starts and finishes from The Forge cafe/shop on Reynolds Lane in Slindon. The cafe is next to the village hall and there is roadside parking on Reynolds Lane, alongside the small orchard (just beyond the Forge). Approximate post code BN18 0QT.

Different to what was planned as nore hill was too much for a young one. A small loop along the slindon estate and downs and back.

Walking

A very enjoyable walk starting and ending in the small yet busy village of Slindon. We live 8 minutes away and had never visited so thank you for letting us experience this walk. Somehow the walk didn't seem as far as others we've enjoyed previously as the time flew by. Lots of birdlife to enjoy today. Wagtails near to the pond at the farm. Goldfinches too. Lucky to spot our 1st ever nuthatch in the woods as well as numerous Robin's and a couple of kestrels over the field on the descent from the folly. 4 is harsh but it wasn't quite a 5 !

First to Review

walked on 22 Oct 2019 weather was glorious. on reaching the folly found it to be teeming with ladybirds perhaps they were making the most of the sunshine. tea and a slice of cake to round off the walk. What a lovely place Slindon is and intend to return regularly, want to explore Northwood area and its wartime history.
