Excellent walking up the vale and along the hill-tops! The views are something to behold! Good uphill clambering - probably not for the less capable walkers!

A glorious October morning for a stroll through the ancient yew forest. Well marked paths on the trail, leading up the hill to an amazing view over Chichester and the harbour. A few other ramblers about, but not so many that they were in sight....More
