pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Bolney Stage in Bolney, West Sussex. The Bolney Stage dates from about 1500 and oozes character with inglenook fireplaces, ancient flagstones and crooked beams. The walking route explores the beautiful surrounding hills and valleys, with amazing views and plenty of wildlife. There's something for everyone on this varied route, from woodlands to parkland, sheep pastures to smallholdings and even a vineyard. The route has several climbs and descents throughout. The paths are unmade for the most part and can get quite muddy in winter and after periods of rain so good waterproof boots are recommended. There are a couple of sections of road walking along quiet lanes so take care of any traffic on these parts. You will need to negotiate several gates plus seven stiles (all of which have either adjacent dog gates or open fencing alongside). Whilst the vast majority of the paths are fenced, you will cross a couple of pastures which are likely to be holding sheep so take care with dogs. The first (and last) sections of path can be a little overgrown but persevere, it is only a few hundred yards. Approximate time 2 to 3 hours.

What a fantastic walk! It really has everything here. Beautiful views and stunning scenery. Lots of nice wooded areas too. Highly recommended.

A lovely first iFootpath walk with the dog, directions were fantastic, very impressed and can’t wait for the next one. Lunch in The Bolney Stage after, lovely bar staff who welcomed the dog and our muddy boots.
