Let’s get walking…
We invite you to send in descriptions of your favourite local walks, whether by the sea or on the Downs or even in your town or village. If you have an accompanying photo, so much the better.
Here are our members contributions so far:

Starting from Walderton, (about 7 miles north of Chichester, via Funtington). The longer walk is about 3 ½ miles in length, the second takes a shortcut and is less than 2 miles long. Both have an uphill stretch (on tarmac) at the start, the longer walk has another gentle uphill section.
A 3½ mile walk that includes shoreline, fields and paths, and a few stiles. The directions are quite complex, a good map is required!
A linear walk combined with public transport. This is a 5½ mile easy walk generally following the course of the River Arun but with woodland, villages and meadows taking you away from the riverbank at
The trail guides you past 30 spectacular trees all lying within or just outside the City Walls. Each one is identified by a number plaque, and a leaflet gives brief information about its age, country of origin and botanical features.
This is a 7 mile circular walk on which you will come across magnificent views and 3 ancient churches in idyllic rural settings – Up Marden, North Marden and East Marden. The terrain is hilly with a variety of fields, woodland, open downland and quiet lanes.
