Getting There

A circular walk through the Slindon Estate within the South Downs in West Sussex. The route begins along a stretch of the old Roman Road, Stane Street, plunging you into 2000 years of history as you journey along one of the best remaining examples of a Roman Road in the country. The remainder of the walk loops through the woodland and downland of the estate, taking in the charming village of Slindon along the way. The Forge, the community cafe and shop in Slindon, provides the perfect place for refreshments half way round the route. The walk follows mostly field and woodland paths, many of which can get very muddy after periods of rain so good waterproof boots are recommended. There are several long and steady climbs and descents throughout. Some of the fields you pass through are likely to be holding sheep so take care with dogs. There are several gates on route plus one stile (which has an adjacent dog gate). Some of the quiet village streets have no pavements so take care of any traffic at these points. Approximate time 3.5 to 4 hours.

The walk starts and finishes at the free National Trust Bignor Hill car park. Heading south along the A29, turn left at Bury, signed to the Bignor Roman Villa. Follow the signs to the villa and pass this on the right. The post code for Roman Villa is RH20 1PH. Continue beyond the villa (and vineyards) and fork left at the next junction. A few yards later turn left to take the unclassified road (with a thatched barn to the left and Jay's Farm to the right). Follow this narrow road which climbs and winds uphill for about a mile. At the top you will emerge to the National Trust Bignor Hill car park.

Delightful walk and excellent directions. We had it to ourselves despite it being a sunny bank holiday
