West Sussex - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

West Sussex - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

by: David Weller
A daily walk with your dog is good for you both and you couldn't hope for a more enthusiastic companion. But once you leave your familiar routes there is always the worry of where you might suddenly find a field full of sheep, or a busy road, not to mention the difficulty of knowing which pubs and cafes will welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 tried and tested circular walks with plenty of opportunities for your dog to roam off lead. The circular routes vary in length from 2.5 to 6 miles and provide a great introduction for dogs and their owners to the superb landscape of West Sussex; exploring the high chalk grasslands of the South Downs; ancient woodland in the Low Weald; bracing walks by the South Coast; and waterside routes by the Ardingly Reservoir and the Wey and Arun canal.

All the walks include details of dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog friendly pubs and cafes and contact details for the nearest vets. Other practical information includes distance, terrain, where to park, how to get there and nearest refreshments. The route finding instructions are in clear numbered paragraphs supported by a coloured sketch map with corresponding location numbers. There are also many colour photographs.
