Wat je gaat doen

Join me on a leisurely 3-mile walk through the beautiful Sussex countryside, into the South Downs National Park via an ancient hollow way following in the footsteps of Romans, commoners and a king fleeing for his life!

We'll start our walk in a village just a ten-minute drive (20-minute by bus) north of Chichester, passing through vineyards, farmland and a beautiful tunnel of trees.

After a short walk uphill, we'll see the restored windmill built in 1740 and have time to admire the 360° views of the Sussex countryside. The Isle of Wight can be seen from here on a clear day.

Learn about Boxgrove Man, the oldest human remains ever found in England, a Neolithic settlement and see WWII radio direction-finding structures. Hear local folktales and learn a little Sussex dialect.

Depending on the time of year, we may see a range of butterflies and birds including buzzards, swifts and skylarks.

While lunch is not included, it is available after our walk from a local pub serving great food made from locally sourced ingredients.

Chichester is the nearest railway station. There is a regular bus service from there to the meeting point. Just ask if you'd like to know more.

Other things to note:
This is an easy walk but it is not suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties.
The route can be very muddy at certain times of year
Alternative times/dates/walk length may be possible

I've lived in West Sussex all my life and love sharing the beautiful countryside and the secrets hidden along these sometimes hard to find footpaths.

I've researched the area, speaking to locals and local historians to learn more about the layers of history hidden here, reaching back over 500,000 years.

This is a lovely walk that I would definitely recommend. I met Kathryn with my dog for the walk today - was pleasantly surprised that Kathryn was happy to run the walk without more people! She was excellent at communicating beforehand - we had to postpone and she was really flexible about this. I live in West Sussex and know the local area but I still learnt loads about the area and it's history. Kathryn was great company - it was really nice hearing about her other projects and interesting life! The walk itself is very pleasant, even on a muddy winter's day. The pace was gentle and the viewpoint at the top gives fantastic views out to sea without being a difficult climb. My dog absolutely loved it too and I felt safe having her off of the lead for 90% of the walk. I'll certainly be repeating the walk with my family and friends.

Would highly recommend this walk. Despite the terrible weather, it was beautiful scenery and very informative. Will definitely return to the area and re-trace our steps so we can see the views under a blue sky.

What a great way to explore some of the beautiful Sussex countryside. Kathryn was a great host who has a good knowledge of local history and folklore and told us some wonderful stories about dragons and devils throughout the walk. The walking pace was comfortable and Kathryn made sure we had regular stops giving her time to tells us about the local sights. The 21/2 hours flew by and I would definitely recommend this walk.
