Getting There

When it comes to the weekend there is nothing more enjoyable than getting out with the family and getting some exercise and fresh air! The route is a gentle circuit through meadows, woodland and fields and is absolutely perfect for all the family. The Worlds End is a beautiful old Sussex longhouse where you can refuel and rehydrate with a great choice of food and drink. The walk follows footpaths and bridleways through fields and woodlands, all of which can get very muddy in winter and after periods of rain. There are gentle gradients throughout, but nothing too strenuous. You will need to negotiate several gates plus four stiles, all of which have very large gaps alongside which should be easy for dogs to pass through. Approximate time 1 hour.

The walk starts and finishes at the Worlds End pub in Patching, which is located next to Patching Lake just north of the A27 between Worthing and Arundel. Leave the A27 at the junction with the A280, signed for Patching. At the roundabout with the sliproads just north of the A27, take the small side road called Arundel Road, heading west. You will come to the pub just a little way along on the right. The pub has its own large car park. Approximate post code BN13 3UQ.

A great little walk for a Sunday stroll. We got some great pictures walking through the maize/sweetcorn field-they are enormous!! A pleasant walk and no moaning from the kids, (11 & 7).

Nice walk, we went at dusk and saw some deer in the fields and the woods. Phone lost connection a couple of times but luckily I picked the right path. However there is a section of the cornfields where the path is heavily covered, you can get through but you can also take a right turn and walk all the way around the field which is what I done as was worried about spiders

At this time of year you walk through a corn field with the plants above your head, which is fun. The view is great above Patching and Clapham.

Great trail which at the moment takes you through the middle of a cornfield. Nice walk through Patching, fields and woodland.

Enjoyed this countryside walk. Would be good in April to detour to the bluebells in Angering Park Estate.

A lovely easy local walk and nice to go through fields and meadows and the village of Patching seeing beautiful cottages. I did this with my 2year old and 70year old mum and found it easy to follow and walk along

one of our favourite local walks and easy to extend if you want to go further. Can be muddy in winter. Beautiful bluebell woods & yellow rapeseed fields in April. The pub has a dog friendly area.

Lovely easy circular walk. Was quite muddy so wished I took welly boots and not walking boots but was very enjoyable all the same. Our dog is 15 years old so can't go too far but he had a great time and the pub at the end (The Worlds End) was very cozy and welcoming. We didn't eat but a lot of people were and the grub looked good.
