West Sussex Year Round Walks

West Sussex Year Round Walks

by: David Weller
On a fine day, no matter what the season, there is nothing quite like a walk country, followed by a hearty meal in a good local pub or café. The twenty circular walks in this volume vary in length from 4.5 to 7 miles and are enjoyable all year round. The author has divided the routes into seasons to show each at its very best: whether it be a woodland cloaked in the warm, golden colours of autumn; the crisp, clear views of a winter landscape; a fragrant carpet of bluebells nodding in a gentle spring breeze; or the lush tapestry of wildflowers in a summer meadow.

Each walk is described in detail, with information on points of interest that are likely to be seen along the way. They give the walker the chance to explore the glorious countryside of West Sussex throughout the year. The book includes colour photographs and sketch maps plus practical information on distance, terrain, map references, and getting to the start. There are walks over Harting Downs, The Trundle and the South Downs Way, all with superb views; through the majestic woodland of Northpark Copse and Eartham Wood; and beside the peaceful waters of the Weir Wood Reservoir, the River Ouse, and the Wey and Arun Canal. There is also the opportunity to visit Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve, the Queen Elizabeth Oak in Cowdray Park, and the Jack and Jill windmills at Clayton.
