This circular walk has some stunning views throughout and a grand seat with a grand view perfectly placed at the end of the up in 'up the downs' (a local saying). The walk touches on The Monarchs Way and spends some time on the South Downs Way. There are both gates and stiles that you will need to negotiate on the route. You may pass through one field of bullocks (the path through this field is part of the South Downs Way and so is well-walked). There is no road walking, but you will need to cross the A285 twice, so take care at these points. Allow 2.5 hours.

Probably near the top - if not at the top - of our list of great walks. Beautiful open countryside and skies with so many amazing views. It took us 2 hours and we weren’t in a hurry. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
