This is a circular walk in West Sussex taking in the pretty villages of West Ashling, Funtington and East Ashling and the wood of Woodend. The woodland is awash with bluebells in the late spring. There are no stiles on the walk but it includes one gate. Parts can be muddy during wet weather and the route passes pigs which are fenced by electric fences. Parts are on public roads but the traffic is generally very light. Allow 2 hours.

This was an easy very varied walk. We particularly enjoyed the paths in Stoke Wood and the views as we reached the field near the sculptures. Although there was quite a lot of walking on quiet roads it was lovely to see places we have only driven past before from a different aspect. Thank you.

A pleasant walk especially the Broadwalk through the woods. Around Funtington the fields were full of pigs meaning my dog has to be kept on her lead for long stretches of the walk. Some particularly ripe smells around the Pig farm! Overall a nice easy walk but a little too much time walking along the roads for my liking.

Lovely walk, good directions, only thing I would add is that there aren't any dog poo / rubbish bins on route, however plenty of places to let the dog off the lead!
