Distance 12 Miles (Sorry, but no dogs)
This was a new walk in 2017 and has become a regular favourite - It starts from the same place as our Wepham walk - The George in Burpham, which is a brilliant community owned pub. The route heads west to explore the northern end of the Arun Gap and the downland ridge on the far side. A good half of the way is flat with much of it along the banks of the peaceful tidal Arun through both open meadow [with wide views to the Downs on either side] and woodland. After a lunch / swim stop, we divert off the riverside path through an old quarry up on to the ridge to the west, with superb views over the Arun Gap, north over the Weald as far as Leith Hill, and south to Arundel Castle and Cathedral and beyond to the sea. Part of the route takes us into Arundel Park where unfortunately dogs are not allowed along the route that we follow.
