A circular walk across the beautiful West Harting Down within the South Downs in West Sussex. With expansive views throughout, a large part of the walk takes in part of the South Downs Way and the Sussex Border Path. The walk has some moderate inclines and declines but nothing too extreme. There are no cattle or sheep on any part of the walk and no stiles or gates were encountered. Allow 3 hours.

Thank you. Instructions very clear. Some of the walk was on a well used bridleway which was quite uneven but well worth the effort. Lovely mixture of woods and more open paths.
