Bedham Old Church

Wakestone Lane, Bedham, Petworth

Parking

Down Wakestone Lane there are several lay-bys to park in. I chose the larger one right on the apex of a very tight corner and if you take the highest route away from the road to start the walk (behind my car in pics).

Terrain

Nothing majorly steep but pretty hilly here with lots of ups and downs. A couple of stiles - one had a large gap in the fence next to it, and the other a large doggy door so Hank easily got through both. Muddy uneven paths and fields - small section of single track road to walk on.

Water

No water here

Poo Bins

No poo bins

About My Walk

The path leading away from the car takes you through some woodlands, and not soon after you may be able to hear the machinery in the quarry to your right but you are a fair distance from this. As you go down the hill, follow the track round to the right (there is a left turn that is to a private field so ignore that) and then soon there's a crossroads and you can go left here, up the hill into the forest. Follow this direction for a while, through the field with lovely views to the right and until you go left down a hill next to a house with a small pond. On the other side of the hill it's left again a little way on until you see the stile which takes you into the next field - through this it leads back to Wakestone Lane, and you have to walk along the road for a little while to get back to the car park.

Along this last section of road you'll see the Old Church on your right just off the road. There is a small track leading to it, but in truth even though I've named the walk after it, it was a bit of a let down as it's fenced off now so you have to view from afar. I'd definitely recommend the walk, but for the walk itself rather than the old church.

It was lovely walk and very quiet - we only saw one other walker. There are fields but no sign of any livestock and Hank spent the vast majority off his lead.
