Getting There

This brief walk from Walderton is ideal for people who like to sit and enjoy the expansive views of the South Downs. There are no fewer than four points with seating, all be it of varying quality. There are no sheep or cattle on route and only a short stretch on a quiet road. You will need to negotiate a couple of stiles and a kissing gate. The walk can be started from within Walderton itself but you can also start from the entrance to a farm track at the north edge of the village (off the road to West Marden).

Walderton is a small village and sits on the B2146 at the base of the South Downs at the source of the River Ems. Leave the village in a north-westerly direction on the B2146 towards West Marden. Our walk starts from the beginning of a farm track which can be found on the right, a short distance from the Walderton sign as you exit the village. There is room for parking on the verge of the track. There is a double metal five bar gate a few yards into the track which is sometimes closed but does not prevent access. The approximate post code is PO18 9EF.

We walked from the Barley Mow where we left the car. As we had lunch the landlady was very happy with this. Beautiful walk with stunning views.

Best walk so far Clear information and for 5km walk plenty to enjoy. The 4 seats are good points to find especially seats 2 and 4. At this time of year plenty of Bluebells between seats 2 and 3. Recommend the view from Seat 4 and the grounds of Walderton House are amazing as is the House. Recommend this walk a lot and will return in both directions Thanks
