pub walk

A circular walk from The Highdown pub close to Goring-by-Sea in West Sussex. The Highdown was originally a grand three-storey family home, built in the 1820s, and today has been restored to a beautiful pub with guest bedrooms. The walking route takes full advantage of this stunning location, following the line of the chalk ridge with far-reaching views to the sea on one side and to the downs on the other. Along the way you will see the Millers Tomb, an old hillfort, pretty chalkland flowers and a converted windmill, plus there is chance to explore the Highdown formal gardens should you wish. The walk includes several steady climbs and descents throughout, but there are no particularly steep parts. It follows an exposed ridge-top path so be prepared for bracing winds. The paths are a mixture of grassland paths and tracks plus a stretch of tree-lined bridleway which can have some surface mud. You will need to negotiate a couple of kissing gates, but there are no stiles on route. You will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock. Dogs are welcome on Highdown Hill, in fact it is a popular dog walking spot that is ideal for sociable dogs. Allow 1 to 1.5 hours.
