Walks start at 11am (and finish about 1pm) so please be there early if you want to change into your walking boots etc, park on road so as not to clog up the pub car park and wear suitable clothes and footwear. The group cannot accept responsibility for any injuries or damage so please take care when walking. Most of all enjoy yourself!

Next Walk

The Fox Goes Free pub at Charlton.

 

The walk itself is a very pleasant one. About 4 miles of mostly easy and varied walking but with two reasonable inclines to negotiate. It basically takes us from Charlton Village up to the top of Levin Down with fine views over the surrounding countryside - the distant stands of Goodwood Race Course being the ’blot on the landscape’! Thereafter via a beautiful farmhouse and the remains of a medieval wood, we return to the top of the Down and meander down to Singleton Village, where there may be time to look in the church, before crossing a level field back to Charlton and the pub for our lunch.

 

There is parking in the pub car park just beyond the pub on the left. Please arrive at about 10.45 am for a prompt ‘off’ at 11am.

 

In the expectation of a reasonable turnout we have booked a table for 14 people.

This is one of the most popular pubs around the area, hence the need to have booked it well in advance. They have emphasised that they will be unlikely  to be able to accommodate any increase in the numbers booked  on a Sunday, so the  booked seats will need to be allocated to the first 14 walkers who let us know they wish to come on the walk and lunch afterwards.

NB On Sunday’s in the restaurant area, where we are accommodated, dogs are not allowed.

We look forward to a great turnout and even better weather!

All the best

Sunday 28th August

Hooksway The Royal Oak but, please, could anyone wishing to eat at the pub let me know by Saturday morning latest, as the landlords are notorious for only opening when they feel like it and not answering the phone!!   After that, take pot luck.

 

Meet at the Royal Oak at 10.45 for a prompt 11.00 start.

Directions 

Coming from Portsmouth / South Harting, on the B2141 Chichester road, after 2.3 miles the signpost Hooksway is  0.3miles after the East Marden S/P.

From the east / Chichester / Lavant, on the B2141 Petersfield road, the Hooksway sign (slightly hidden by shrubbery) is 1 mile after the White Horse pub at Chilgrove.  

The pub is at the bottom of a short very narrow track. Take care of walkers. Park on the grass car park behind the pub, please start parking from the back.

 

It’s a 4mile hilly walk, partly on the South Downs Way and passing Beacon Hill.  There are stunning 360 degree views and some interesting history along the way. Advise bring a bottle of water if it’s a hot day.   Lunch is booked for 1.15pm at The Royal Oak at Hooksway PO18 9JZ, hidden away off the B2141.

 

I have done this walk several times recently and walkers need to note that if it has rained beforehand, there is a stretch of path which is all chalk so needs boots or walking shoes with decent grip, as it would be slippery.   There is another narrow path that has hidden uneven track, some nettles and a few long brambles, so legs and arms may want to be clothed!   Up to you, it’s tempting to wear sandals and bare arms and legs but you have been warned!!    However, most of it is easy walking and all worth it for the diverse views.

Regards  Maureen J.

Sunday 14th August

from Victoria Inn, West Marden. 5 mile walk (taking approx 2.5 hours) PO18 9EN, off B2146, NW of Funtington. Park along the road if possible as pub car park is small. Walk has brilliant views, 2 long reasonable climbs and steepish descent. Meet at 10.30 (earlier than usual) to choose your meal in advance. Walk will start at 10.45 to make sure we get back for 1.30 pm booking.  We have booked for 14, but please let us know by Friday midday if you intend to walk, just eat or  do both so that we can finalise numbers with the pub. The Victoria Inn is very popular on a Sunday - excellent roasts for £14  & snacks around £7.  We look forward to seeing as many as possible.

Sunday 7th August

I shall lead a walk on Sunday starting and finishing at the car park of the Inn on the Beach pub
97 SEA FRONT
HAYLING ISLAND
PO11 0AS Starting from the car park at 11 am I shall lead the group along the Hayling Billy Trail and back. The distance covered will be around 5 miles or less depending on how fast people want to walk. The walk should take about two hours and I have booked two tables of six at the pub for 1.15 pm. Walkers can park in the pub car park but as space could be limited I suggest that they share cars. Please ensure you have clean footwear to use in the pub. Parking in any of the beach car parks can be expensive. Free parking is available away from beach but one has to look for it. In any case we should be able to use the pub car park at 11 am. Sunday is forecast to be sunny; traffic into the island could be heavy and slow. People should allow for this. Dogs are allowed on the Hayling Billy Trail but not on Hayling beach.
After lunch I invite walkers to join me at my beach hut for sparkling wine and/or fruit juice. We might as well take advantage of any sunshine and swim using the beach hut as a base. So do bring your swimming gear along. Would people who wish to join the walk please let me know by email (devgadgil1@gmail.com) , telephone call or text message (02392482842 , 07876764096) especially if they wish to stay for lunch. Please note that I am not using my old yahoo email address.
If anybody not wishing to join the walk or pub lunch wants to come along just for a chat and a drink they are welcome to the beach hut at around 3 pm. My beach hut, No R38 is about 300 metres from the Inn on the Beach in the direction of the fairground.
I hope to see a few of you on Sunday
Regards Dev

Sunday 31st July

Sunday 17th July

I shall lead a walk next Sunday starting and finishing at the car park of the Walnut Tree Pub, Vinnetrow Road, Chichester PO20 1QB. The walk is longer than our usual ones, about 6 miles but on flat terrain. It is mainly on little used country lanes but does take in a field which could be muddy so walkers should have appropriate footwear. I have booked a table for lunch at the pub for 2 pm. Walkers with dogs will need to keep their pets on a lead all the time. Poor Barney, if he joins us will not be able to play with his ball very much. The pub has quite a large car park; none-the-less I recommend car-sharing.
I shall start the walk at 11 am as usual.

On my own and walking at a brisk pace I have done the walk in less than two hours but a I expect us to take significantly longer hence the 2 pm booking.

Would friends who would like to come along please let me know either by email on gadgil2005@yahoo.co.uk or by ringing or texting me on 07876764096 or 02392482842 especially if they intend to stay for lunch.
I hope to see lots of walking friends next Sunday
Thanks and Regards Dev devgadgil@hotmail.com

Whiteways Lodge car park, on top of Bury Hill, it is a 4 mile walk from top end of car park postcode for sat nav is BN18 9FD.

Sunday 22nd May

Maureen and I would like to propose leading a walk with the group starting at the usual time of 11am. The walk will start from The Barleycorn Pub, Nutbourne, Chichester which is a short distance on the main A259 road from Chichester, travelling in the direction of Havant. The pub is located on the corner of the A259 (Main Road Nutbourne) and Cot Lane, on the left side when coming from Chichester. There is parking in a small car park in front of the pub and also on the immediate left in Cot Lane itself. We suggest using the on road parking in the lane if there is enough space there for all of us, before taking space in the pub car park.

The walk itself is over flat and easy terrain, which takes us across fields and down to the waterfront near Chidham Point, proceeding thereafter along the estuary wall towards Thornham Marina on view in the distance; a very attractive vista all the way. Shortly before  the Marina, we turn off into the pretty village of Prinsted with its plethora of thatched houses. Thereafter the walk proceeds along an enclosed path inland (except for a short return to the estuary wall at one point) through hedged paths, fields, orchards and barns, returning across fields to Cot lane and the Pub for lunch. An easy walk that should take no more than two hours to accomplish.

The pub runs a carvery on Sunday’s with only a very limited alternative menu. However, the carvery is good value at £9.50 per head including soup to start with. A crab salad or vegetarian option would also be possible, but needs to be ordered the day before, by telephoning the pub and letting them know you are with the walking group. Tele 01243 573172.

We will book a table at the pub for 14 but as usual, in fairness to the Landlord, we will be grateful for early notification by email or phone from those who are able to join us for the walk, but particularly if you will also be stopping for lunch, as the pub would like to know final numbers as soon as possible of course.

 

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible and will keep fingers crossed for good weather!

Sunday 8th May 2016

I shall lead a walk on Sunday starting and finishing at the Spotted Cow Pub - Selsey Road, Hunston, Chichester, West Sussex PO20 1PD. The pub is on the B2145 not far from Chichester. The walk is between 4 and 5 miles long, on flat terrain and should take about 2 hours to complete. We may use the pub car park but I suggest car sharing. It could be wet and muddy so we should all bring separate shoes for use in the pub. I aim to get to the pub car park at 10.45 am and to start the walk at 11 am
I last did this walk in October 2014 so it may be new to some of our present members and not too recent for the others! Could members who would like to join the walk let me know by email, text or phone call please, especially if they want to join us for lunch: devgadgil@hotmail.com, 07876764096 , 02392482842 . 
I have provisionally booked a table for 1.30 pm. See everybody on Sunday.
Thanks and Regards                                     Dev

Sunday 10th of April

The George at Eartham up to Nore Hill Folly, which is a moderate stroll of some 6km through part of the NT Slindon Estate. 
Mostly well drained chalky soil underfoot though possibly a bit muddy at the start of the farm track.We are advised that there may be livestock grazing in nearby fields, so although welcome, dogs will need to be kept under control. Hopefully there will be a good show of bluebells and some lovely views from the top.

We would aim to meet in the car park at the rear of The George at 11am to start walking by 11.15am.

If anyone is interested, please contact Andrew or Pauline on 01243 778773 or  07941 059361 Email : silverdawnfr@gmail.com.


We have provisionally booked a table for ten at The George for 1.30pm and need to confirm numbers on Saturday.

Best wishes

Easter Monday 28th of March

The walk will start and finish at the The Stonemasons Inn pub, North Street, Petworth, GU28 9NL.
It will take slightly over 2 hours to complete and cover some 4 to 5 miles. I shall start the walk at 11 am and finish shortly after 1 pm - I can't give an exact time - but I have booked a lunch table for 12 people at the pub at 1.30 pm. The pub car park isn't very big. I recommend car-sharing. Free parking can be found in a lane nearby and anybody who can prove his/her membership of the National Trust can park for free in the Petworth House Car Park not far from the pub.

Most of the walk will be in Petworth Park and there will be ups and downs. The terrain was muddy when I last did the walk though not as muddy as on Amberley down last month. Anyway things could improve between now and then. Could walkers please bring clean footwear for use in the pub. Dogs are allowed on the walk but have to be on a lead.

my phone number is 02392482842 or 07876764096 particularly if they intend to stay for lunch. I look forward to seeing everybody on Monday. Regards                 Dev devgadgil@hotmail.com

Sunday 13th of March

I’ll lead a walk on Sunday from The Ship Inn at Itchenor, PO20 7AH.   We shall have to start the walk promptly  at 10.30  as the pub could only seat us at 12.30

The walk will take in West Wittering and back along the Chichester Channel, no hills but with the water tables and intermittent heavy rain, there will inevitably be some mud somewhere.  However, it’ll be better than other locations – mud-wise!

I’ve booked for 12 so please could those who would like a booked space, please email me maureeneej@gmail.com or text 07740-421022.

Hope to see you there

Best regards

Maureen J. 

Sunday 21th of Feb

I shall lead a walk next Sunday starting and finishing at St Michael's Church, Church Street,  Amberley, BN18 9NA. The pub where we shall have lunch is The Sportsman Inn, Rackham Road, Amberley BN18 9NR. It is less than five minutes away from the church by car. Should there be any doubt about the location St Michael's is a 12th century church in Amberley Village very close to one of the walls of Amberley Castle. There is a pottery nearby as is a Church  of England school. According to Google the church is on School Road which causes confusion. In any case once you are in Amberley village the church is not difficult to find. I don't think there is a proper public car park but parking spaces can be found.
I shall start the walk at 11 am and we should finish by 1 pm. The walking distance is probably slightly more than 4 miles but we are likely to need the two hours allowing for halts to take in the sights. We shall climb up Amberley Down going up to a trig point and then return by a different path.

Please be warned, the wind at the top of the down can be very strong and cold so please dress suitably. There are likely to be very muddy areas to cross at times. But then if you don't like mud you can't be British. As Horatio Nelson nearly said "England expects every man to get muddy - and every woman".


As usual I request that people should have additional clean footwear for the pub. I have booked a table for 12 people. Would friends who wish to join the walk please let me know by an email to the hotmail address which I am currently using or by a call or text message to 02392482842 or 07876764096 particularly if they intend to stay for lunch. I look forward to seeing everybody on Sunday. Regards                 Dev devgadgil@hotmail.com

Sunday 7th of Feb

I shall lead a walk this Sunday starting and finishing at the White Horse Pub, 1 The Street, Sutton, RH20 1PS. The pub is very busy but have given me 12 places at 3 tables at 1.30 pm. The walk will start at 11.00 am at the pub car park. The car park is small. I advise people to park elsewhere. During the walk there will be several ups and downs often amongst trees and it will be muddy.

I suggest that walkers should bring clean additional footwear for use in the pub. Could friends who wish to join in please come back to me by email or on the phone at 07876764096 or 02392482842. But please note that I am using a different email address, not my usual yahoo one. Thanks and Regards

Sunday 24th of Jan 2016

Maureen and I would like to offer a walk from the Royal Oak at Hooksway (yes again!). Most of the walkers seem to like this pub as there is a wide range of food from a bar snack to a full roast available, even on a Sunday. Although the walk will inevitably cover part of the ground we have traversed before, much of it will be new. It was featured in The Times newspaper on Boxing Day and we tried out a slightly shortened version of it on Saturday. It offers some fine views and some steady climbs with the odd steep bit, but for any of those who joined us on the Beacon Hill walk from the same pub last year, it should present no real difficulties. This time the hill in question is Didling Hill which is nowhere near as steep as Beacon.

As before we would like to make an earlier start than usual  at 10 30am from the pub car park (please park on the grass at the rear of the car park) because the pub only serves food until 2pm and prefers not to receive a large lunch order too late in the day.

Also we estimate the walk will take 2.5 hours, so a 10.30am start will hopefully see us back there for lunch by about 1pm.

I have provisionally booked a table in the cosy dining room with its log burning stove for twelve people, but will be very grateful if all those intending to join us, will let me know by phone or email as soon as possible this week. This in fairness to Dave, the pub landlord, as last time we ended up as sixteen, whilst only expecting twelve(!) and at the other end of the spectrum if we have a small turnout I don’t want him to keep back a large table for us, which he might otherwise have been able to use for other punters.

 

All best wishes John (Stanley)

The walk will start at 11 am from the Anchor Bleu Pub High St Bosham Chichester, West Sussex PO18 8LS. They do a Sunday roast for £10.95 they tell me. I shall park my car in the pay and display car park near the pub. Free parking is available in Bosham, but people will have to look for it. The walk is 5 miles-plus on flat terrain. It should take about  2 hours 15 minutes to complete. Please be prepared to tackle muddy fields and have additional clean footwear for the pub. Usual start 11 am. We shall walk through the grounds of the Holy Trinity church, then along the sea front, into fields; coming to another part of the coastline we'll take in a view of Chichester Cathedral across the water then proceed through some reeds to an attractive duck pond in Fishbourne.

Sunday 25th October

 

The Royal Oak at Hooksway, which covers some old ground ( for those who have been with us before) but this time we propose to include a small deviation up Beacon Hill for a change (maybe a little dependant on the weather).

 

The walk has its ‘ups and downs’ (in other words not all on the flat) and one short sharp ‘steepy’ up to the top of Beacon Hill – worth it though for the panoramic views, if we are lucky enough to have a clear day.

usual start time 11 am sharp.

anything from a light snack through to a full roast lunch. We are welcome to park in the pub car park as long as we go to the back of it, on the grass.

 

We will book a table for twelve but  would be very grateful for early responses so that we can let the landlord know and table numbers can then be adjusted up or down in plenty of time, as necessary.

Sunday 13th September

 

I shall lead a walk this Sunday starting and finishing at the Lamb Inn, 144 Pagham Rd, Nyetimber, Bognor Regis, West Sussex, PO21 4NJ. I have led this walk more than once  but not in the last 12 months.  The walk will start at the pub car park at 11 am. I have booked a table for 1.30pm at the pub who do a roast main course for £10-50 or a bit more depending on your choice of roast. Could friends who wish to join us please let me know, particularly if they intend to stay for lunch.
The walk should take 2 hours 15 min to complete - I have done it in less than that without trying hard - and will be on flat terrain. It could be muddy in bits; walkers should prepare for the conditions and have additional clean footwear for use in the pub afterwards.
I can be contacted by email or on 02392482842 or 07876764096.
Thanks and Regards                                    Dev    email ( gadgil2005@yahoo.co.uk )

Sunday 30th August

 

I shall lead a walk starting and finishing at the public car park behind the George Pub, Main Street, Burpham, Arundel, West Sussex BN18 9RR next Sunday. But Walkers please note we will not be eating at this pub who say they cannot accommodate us.


The walk will be hilly. There will be ups and downs including a 200 yard stretch that is quite steep and leads up to John Upperton's Gibbet. The walk can be done in two hours though we can add on another 20 minutes to get to a certain trig point if people want to. There will be some good views of Arundel Castle on the walk in any case. Please be prepared for any kind of weather and have clean footwear to take into the pub we shall eat at. The car park can fill up so car-sharing is advisable. But there are other places to park in the village.

After the walk I suggest we drive to The Black Rabbit Pub, Mill Rd, Arundel, West Sussex BN18 9PB for lunch. I haven't booked a table there but we have, in the past, gone there without booking and found suitable tables, often by the riverside.


Please could those who intend to join the walk or lunch ensure that I have their mobile numbers in case of last minute mishaps. My mobile number is 07876764096. They can also email me but should do so in good time.


I hope to see lots of walkers on Sunday

Sunday 9TH August

 

Please come to Hayling Island for an extra walk since we missed one two Sundays ago. I shall start and finish the walk at the car park of the Inn on the Beach Pub, 97 Sea Front, Hayling Island PO11 0AS. The walk will be on flat terrain. We can either do a beach walk or one along the Hayling Billy Trail. The Hayling Billy was a train which ran between Havant and Hayling before a government minister called Dr Beeching came along in the 1950s. I shall take a consensus on the day but will ensure that the walk finishes in two hours or less.
We will need to park in the pub car park as the beach public car parks are expensive. I suggest that you share cars where possible. Apart from your walking shoes please bring along clean footwear to use in the pub. The walk will start at 11 am. I have booked a lunch table at the pub for 1.15 pm.
After lunch please join me at my beach hut if you wish.  It is located halfway between the pub and the fair ground. I shall provide sparkling wine and fruit juice and also a few chairs and rugs to sit on. If you can bring along a folding chair please do. Please also bring along your swimming gear if you want to join me in the water - let's hope the weather will be suitable. I am afraid dogs are not allowed at the beach hut in the summer. If you have a dog please tell him/her "Uncle Dev says don't take it personally"
People are welcome to come for the walk and/or lunch and/or the beach hut but please let me know your intentions by email ( gadgil2005@yahoo.co.uk ) or on 02392482842 or 07876764096.

Sunday 12th July

road to Houghton from the Bury Roundabout towards Storington the walk from Amberley village.  Turn into the village off the B2139   start at the junction of the High Street and East Street meets Hog Lane Where the pub The Black Horse was before it closed down

We will also need to leave at 11.00 prompt as the walk is 5 miles.

we can eat in the Sportsman bar which is just a bit further up. (Rackham Road)  So I have provisionally booked a table for 10 people, at 1:15 at the Sportsman - there maybe extra tables outside (but not guaranteed). http://thesportsmanamberley.com/

The walk is very good, taking in a couple of pretty villages, some woods, a bit of the Arun and finishes in Amberley Wild Brooks so make sure your walking boots are waterproof as there will be 2-3 inches deep wet marsh land to cross but should be fine as we have not had too much rain this week or predicted before Sunday.

Sunday 28th June

 

I shall lead a walk next Sunday starting and finishing at the Inn on the Beach pub, 97 Sea Front, Hayling Island, PO11 0AS. I don't know the exact distance but it can be done in two hours or less at a leisurely pace. There will be no climbing involved but we will be on sand and pebbles at times. In addition to their walking gear walkers should bring clean footwear along to eat at the pub. We can park in the pub car park but it could be busy and I recommend car sharing. The pub will do a Sunday roast for £10.95 or £12.95 depending on one's choice. I am afraid dogs are not allowed on Hayling beaches at this time of the year. The walk will start from the pub car park at 11 am. The table booking is for 1.15 pm. After lunch I invite walkers to my beach hut approximately 300 yards east of the pub to relax over a glass of sparkling wine or fruit juice which I shall provide. I have a few chairs at the beach hut but it would help if you could bring along your own folding chairs. Then if you are brave enough to go into the water why not bring along your swimming gear? People have regularly done that in past years. Again I advise you to share cars as parking outside the pub car park is expensive
Please let me know if you wish to come along, especially if you want to have lunch at the pub as I have to advise them about the table-booking. You can contact by email gadgil2005@yahoo.co.uk or on 07876764096 or 02392482842.
I look forward to seeing everybody on Sunday.

Sunday 23 rd November

The walk will start at 11 am from the Anchor Bleu Pub High St Bosham Chichester, West Sussex PO18 8LS .  

I shall park my car in the pay and display car park near the pub. Free parking is available in Bosham, but people will have to look for it.

Sunday 26th October

Bridge Pub at Houghton Bridge but due to their booking policy for Sunday lunch, we need to be back at the pub by 12.45 latest.  If it is OK with everybody who is thinking of joining us then, can we make a start from the pub car park at the earlier than usual time of 10.30am? The walk should not take more than two hours in reality, but leaving a little flexibility in timing, a 10.30am start would mean we will definitely be back for lunch by 12.45  at the latest.

it is quite flat terrain with only a few relatively gentle inclines and a couple of very short (approx. 30 yards each) slightly steeper slopes and only a couple of stiles. Apart from the small amount of muddy terrain nearly all the paths are well made, firm and easily walkable.

I have provisionally booked a table for twelve at the pub, but will be grateful for early indications as to numbers, so I can adjust the table size as necessary. The pub does the usual Sunday lunches but also has an extensive menu, including other main courses and snacks for those not wishing to indulge in the ‘full monty’!

 Maureen and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible next Sunday.

Ps Remember the clocks go back 1 hour so you will get an extra hour to help you arrive half an hour earlier then usual.

All the best

George and Dragon, Houghton BN18 9RR.   At the A27 at Fontwell, take the A29 north past Slindon to the Whiteways roundabout (top gate of Arundel Park).   At this large roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto the B2139 SP Storrington.   The George and Dragon is on the left on the bendy, narrow hill, so travel slowly and turn into the car park immediately before the pub. 

 

Please note we need to start the walk by 10.45 LATEST, to be in the pub for 12.45 table.  (The other pub only has tables at 12 or 12.30 andcannot cater for us after that until 2pm, which we have experienced before and is was not popular with most of the group.)

The name of the pub is the Inn on the Beach , Seafront, Hayling Island. From Chichester please come on the A27 towards Portsmouth. When you see the exit to Hayling Island and Havant take it. Follow the sign to Hayling Island. You will be on the A3023 which is variously called Langstone Road, Langstone Bridge, Havant Road, Manor Road and Beach Road. Eventually you will get to a road called Sea Front at a mini-roundabout. As you approach this mini-roundabout you will also see the Fun fair. Turn right into Sea Front and keep going until you see a sign on your left leading to The Inn on the Beach.

see restrictions on dogs on the beach on previous posts see details on 24th July 2011  or 12th of August 2012 as below

Usual meeting time 10.45. for a 11 am start

Dev will book something up at the pub if people know they are coming and would like something to eat after the walk. The lunch table will be booked for 1 pm. I recommend car-sharing. Car parking is expensive outside the pub car park. Once again I invite walkers to join me after lunch at my beach hut nearby for a chat and a glass of sparkling wine or orange juice. But I request anybody planning to meet us there to bring along a folding chair and swim wear if planning a swim.

There maybe more details to follow from dev, I am just posting this to give walkers time to plan if they want to do this walk.

Sunday 20th July

 

Boat pound at the top of Silverston Ave where Marine Drive West ends and Fish Lane begins opposite West park. The tide is lower then when we tried it last year so hoping we will be able to get all the way to Pagham Harbour and back

Parking on the seafront is pay and display at this time of year but there is free parking further back in Silverston Avenue and Kings Parade of the roads coming off this. See Map

usual start time for an 11 am leave from the Boat Pound.

We can eat at the Waverley Pub they don't do sandwiches on Sundays but they do smaller plates from £4 as well as all the Sunday Roasts, if you let me know you are coming I will try to book a table but it is also ok not to book and they have outside tables in a covered area on the sea front.

It is sometimes as low as 0.13 meters and high as 2.30 so this 1.13 meters should be low enough for a walk without having to go on the stones so if want to walk in flip-flops, crocs or sandles it should be fine to do so but use walking boots if you prefer.

Peter/Helen 01243 820565/ info@cottagewebs.co.uk

Sunday 6th July

The Royal Oak, at Hooksway (not to be confused with the pub of the same name at Lavant). It is about fifteen minutes’ drive out of central Chichester.

Our walk will start from there at 11am sharp (as the owner does not serve food late, even on a Sunday!) so please aim to arrive by 10.45am. The walk itself is for the most part, a gentle undulating amble through woods, a country estate and over the Downs, (with some wonderful far reaching views) and finishing across meadows and into a picturesque green and partly wooded valley, that leads directly back to the pub car park. (Lots of butterflies in evidence when we did it today for those interested in ‘nature’). We expect it to take about two hours, arriving back at the pub for lunch, where anything from a snack to a full roast dinner is available, all at very reasonable prices.

 

Overall, this is a very easy walk. The first hundred yards or so, takes us about halfway back up the hill from the pub and is a moderately steep slope, though soon over. The remainder, with the exception of another approx. hundred yard section about half way round, where again a similar slope is encountered, is otherwise on flat or gently undulating terrain, with mostly well walked and wide paths or tracks.

 

It would be very helpful if all those intending to join us, could email or telephone to let me know as soon as possible, so that I can let the pub know our numbers and book a table to accommodate us all accordingly. Telephone numbers are 01243 696817 and M. 077722 36187.

 

Maureen and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible – we promise not to get you lost on this, our first effort!

We shall be on tarmac all the way. If the waves are too rough - and there have been country-wide warnings that they might be - I shall take a more inland route. When I did the walk last Sunday the waves were pretty docile. But people should take this into consideration before deciding whether to join the walk.

I have booked a table at the pub for 1 pm. There is a roast lunch for £8.95 on offer, not bad but parking in the area is expensive. I definitely suggest car-sharing. Please be prepared for rain, wind and maybe even sun!   Could our walking friends please let me know whether they will be joining the walk and/or the lunch by email or telephone 02392482842 or 07876764096.  

Thanks and Regards  Dev   gadgil2005@yahoo.co.uk

Sunday  12 th Jan.

Meet Northgate car park by the public toilets, 11am..... I’m not sure if a charge is applied on Sunday, so please check the meter!  This is the large car park near the Festival Theatre and just off the one way system with the fire station located on it.  There are a couple of pubs in/off North Street where we can go for lunch after; The George/The Park Tavern.

If the group would like a walk this Sunday - we may be lucky not to get too rained upon!

Bearing in mind the fields and footpaths are water logged, I will be happy to lead a walk around the city walls of Chichester.  It won’t be our usual 5 miles, but it will be on tarmac!

Let Jane know if you want to eat,   janeashby2@hotmail.co.uk

It goes North from the pub so doesn't have the large hills in the South over Kingly Vale and, should be nice if the broad leave trees are starting to turn.

Richard has kindly agreed to lead this Sunday's walk. It will start at the Castle Inn pub, Finchdean Road, Rowlands Castle very close to Rowlands Castle railway station. The walk will last two hours as usual and will be hilly. There is free parking in the nearby streets so I suggest that we do not all park in the pub car park. Richard will wait outside the pub from 10.45 am onwards and will start the walk at 11 am

Sunday roasts are available in the pub restaurant at £8-50p. I have booked a table there. If the weather is good we will very likely abandon the table and eat outside. None-the less it would help if prospective diners were to send me an email. Thanks and Regards Dev

29th May Sunday

 

Cricketers on Dunction High St. on the A285 main road to Petworth from Chichester. .

The walk takes in Burton Park and church with ancient Sweet Chestnut tree, then through woods, country lanes,
an ancient yew tree at Barlavington, and then if we are feeling energetic a brief hike up to the top of Duncton Down and back to the Cricketers via Duncton Mill.

Usual 10.45 for a 11 am start.

The food is slightly higher in price than others but the standard is good and people can have a soup and bread all the way up to a Sunday Roast.  There is also a lovely garden if the weather is suitable.

To book your place please let Barbara know you are coming.

barbara@stillness.co.uk

15th May Sunday

The Fox goes Free, Nr Goodwood, Charlton, PO18 0HU, 10.45 for 11am

Walking from Charlton, through woods coming out beside the racecourse we then walk alongside the road parallel with the racecourse before turning back towards Singleton and alongside the River Lavant back to the pub.  It has a steep uphill to start and a steep downhill about half way round.  There is also a fair distance walking beside the road (mostly wide verges) where dogs will have to be on leads.

Rather than booking a table, there are some very large tables in the front garden, more in the back - so should be plenty of space.  I was there last Sunday (on my bike) and joined some 30 cyclists.... the pub were coping very well!

Berkeley Arms pub in Bosham on Sunday 12th March 2011. To get there please follow the Bosham sign from the A259. The pub is on the corner of Delling Lane and Bosham lane. The walk is flat but might be muddy in places and should take slightly over 2 hours. There usually are spaces for free car parking near the pub although the pub does not have a car park of its own. Car sharing would be a good idea. There is also a pay and display car park at the end of Bosham lane as an alternative.

The pub offers Sunday roasts for less than £10. I have booked two tables close to each other to accommodate 20 people. Let's hope we get that many takers.

Sunday 30th Jan 11

Last year I led one from the Winterton Arms in Crockerhill up to
Halnaker Windmill and back, which would be easy to do this Sunday as I remember the route. I don't have time to plan anything else so am afraid  this is a rather predictable walk for those who have already done it (unless somebody can muck in with a variation), but at least it's exercise and a social and better than no walk at all! It goes steadily through the fields, climbs up to the windmill, and returns virtually the same way, since there is no circular route from the windmill.

Usual meeting time 10.45 am for 11 a.m start. For those that don't know, the Winterton Arms is off the A27; travelling east from Chichester towards Arundel, after the Tangmere roundabout take the next sliproad to Crockerhill and make an immediate left. The pub lies behind and parallel to the A27 and is signposted.

I think there were 17 of us last time and we had a memorable roast lunch at the Winterton. Unfortunately the pub lost its chef and suffered for a while, but they assure me that he has been replaced with a decent cook. I must give them some idea by Friday of numbers as they can't cater for large numbers suddenly descending on them. I make no promises as to the quality of the food as I haven't been back since their last cook quit. They only do a roast, no other menu, but there is a veggie option (nut roast). The price is £9.95 or £10.50 with a glass of wine.

(We went to the Winterton Arms just after the New Year.  They were struggling and the atmosphere was pretty dead but the food was fairly OK just to let you know... Barbara)

Please email me Angela at (hampton789@btinternet.com) or phone/text me 07880 550653 by Friday if you can.

Sunday 16th Jan 11

Heather will be leading the walk, please let her know by Weds 12th of Jan if you want a place booked at the Black Horse Climping, it can be a little expensive at around £10 for a main meal.

Enter the village and carry on till you come to the George and Dragon pub on your left. Just past the pub take a left turn into a public car park. Parking is free but the car park is not very big.

From Burpham to Angmering Park and back. It is about 5 miles long and hilly. It should take slightly over two hours to complete.

I will try and get a table in the garden but if anybody can put a folding chair in his/her car boot it might come in handy. Lets hope we get a few takers at short notice.

Sunday 27th June

I will be at the house so you will need to meet at The Fish House (former pub) in Chilgrove at 10.45 a.m.. The pub/restaurant is on the main road (B2141). Right opposite the Fish House is a bridle path (bins at the bottom). You travel up this for three-quarters of a mile through woodland, first a steep incline then a dip. Half way up the track there is a left turn but ignore this and keep going straight. At the bottom of the dip, first drive on the right is the house set back in a field. There is no name at the bottom of the drive but you will see my campervan between the trees. If you dont see my campervan you've got the wrong house! So please dont disturb anybody to ask the way. It is the FIRST house on the right. There is no mobile signal here so you would need to go back to the road to get a signal.

am looking after an elderly dog and 5 miles may be too much for her. See it as a social rather than an exercise.
Please bring food for all to share and something for you to drink, though I will provide teas and coffees.

I cannot take more than four cars here so be considerate and carpool from the pub. I think it will be ok to park there as the car park is very big, but it may be polite, if there are more than 4 cars, to ask permission from the landlord. I haven't seen anywhere else to park - there may be somewhere further up the road. I will try and take a look before June 27th and post any more information. It's difficult to get my van in and out as the track is gravel and steep, but no problem for cars.

Please call me if you are coming so that I know how many I am catering for. The landline here is 01243 535374

Sunday 20th June

I shall get there at 10:45 am and start the walk at 11 am. I shall book a table at the Barley Mow pub. The pub offers reasonably priced meals including a help-yourself carvery meal for £9.50p. Could walkers who would like lunch at this pub lease email me so I know the size of the table to book. In case of difficulty on the day please use my mobile number 07876764096.

Sunday 6th June

The walk starts in South Harting at 11am. Coming into South Harting from the south (B2146), you will pass the White Hart on LHS (where lunch will be, big garden at the back) then turn left towards Petersfield. Just after the turning is a small lay-by, when/if this is full, just after it there is a wide grass verge for parking

The walk will be up onto the Downs, so there will be some hills. The car park at the White Hart is very small and there is limited street parking. So I suggest cars are left where they are, it’s only a short distance to the pub.

It’s a pleasant walk, some up & downs but nothing steep!! 

As the group has grown so much recently, it has become increasingly difficult for the chosen pubs to cater for all those who wish to eat & difficult for the walk leaders to book appropriate numbers.  We have provisionally booked a room & approximate places at the pub & have to confirm numbers a few days before.  Therefore, please let us know if you wish to eat by Thursday 25th evening.   After that, it will be pot luck with the remaining few tables in the pub.  There is a selection of roasts & specials plus a couple of vegetarian options.

 The Black Horse in Amberley..

Turn into the village off the B2139 the pub is in the village centre, if you turn right immediately after the pub there is a walled road you can park against. It has some good main meals and does snacks.... It also allows dogs inside and has plenty of tables outside,

Usual start time of 10.45 for 11 am start it is about 5 miles long and mostly very flat so should be comfortable 2 hour walk.

I have not booked a table as they have outside seating available and if it is sunny sure most will want to sit outside anyhow.

The walk is very good, taking in a couple of pretty villages, some woods, a bit of the Arun and finishes in Amberley Wild Brooks so make sure your walking boots are waterproof as there will be 2-3 inches deep wet marsh land to cross but should be fine as there is some rain predicted on Friday but if it is fine on the weekend should not be a problem.

Redford just NW of Midhurst. From Midhurst take the A272 towards Petersfield...after a short distance you will see the Half Moon pub on the right.

There is a clearing on the left where we can park but it is not actually signed as a park so look out for it....I hope to be there in good time to wave people in !!. 

My idea is to bring a picnic providing the weather is fine as there is an ideal place by the cars for our return. For those who prefer a roast and a beer there is the pub at Steadham .or The Half Moon and lots of pubs and teashops in Midhurst ...all close by

The Black Horse in Amberley..

Turn into the village off the B2139 the pub is covered in scaffolding but it is still open as normal, if you turn right immediately after the pub there is a walled road you can park against. It has some good main meals and does snacks.... It also allows dogs inside and has plenty of tables outside,

  Usual start time of 10.45 for 11 am start it is about 5 miles long and mostly very flat so should be comfortable 2 hour walk.

I have booked a table of 8 inside they also have plenty of outside tables which some of you may prefer anyhow if the weather is as fine as predicted.

The walk is very good, taking in a couple of pretty villages, some woods, a bit of the Arun and finishes in Amberley Wild Brooks so make sure your walking boots are waterproof as there will be 2-3 inches deep wet marsh land to cross but should be fine as we have not had too much rain this week or predicted before Sunday.

 Eat at The Earl of March which is a couple of hundred Yards away from where you can park, Landlord does not like cars blocking up the pub car park while we go walking which is fair enough as it is not a large park.

Walkers have the option to eat in the pub or the tearooms opposite. Sharp departure at 11am to minimise any delay in getting food. Tony Tony.Beach@uk.lockton.com
