A linear walk from Pulborough rail station to Amberley rail station forming Part 24 of the Sussex Hospices Trail. This is a fascinating walk of contrasting landscapes such as wooded heathland, managed wetlands along the Arun, the picture box village of Amberley and the chalk scarp slope of the Downs. The return leg can be completed with a single 6 minute train journey. The hospices of Sussex are dedicated to providing specialist end-of-life care. Friends of Sussex Hospices has worked with partners and supporters to create the Sussex Hospices Trail, a 200 mile long-distance path to support and raise awareness of the twelve hospice care providers that serve the adults and children of Sussex. This stretch of the route has several climbs and descents throughout, including one steep climb up to the South Downs ridge. Several of the paths follow the River Arun and cross its flood plain so it can be very muddy at times (and may be impassable with floodwater in wet winters or after periods of heavy rain). In summer, some of the narrow paths can be a bit overgrown. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates and a few stiles. You will be sharing a few of the fields with cattle and at least one field with sheep so take particular care with dogs. Allow 3.5 hours.
