Small worn lay-by with room for a couple of cars nearly opposite Palmers Farm on West Chiltington Lane. Is muddy and bumpy and quite wet too when we visited. The start of the walk is the next turning on the left past Palmers Farm, where the signposts lead you off to the right.
Mix of field paths, roads, and woodland paths which are narrow in parts and bumpy/boggy. Is a bit of a walk along a minor road without pavements to get back to car at the end. There are stiles here. See About My Walk section for more details.
If you go through the bridge under the train tracks, there is a small woodland section walking alongside a small winding stream.
No bins here
The paths from the new estate (at time of writing!) at Ambersham Green also link directly to these routes.
This is definitely one of those walks if you just want to escape the baying crowds and have a bit of peace and quiet. It's not busy and it's very pretty, but there are lots of areas where you're walking through fields with grazing horses or cattle, or alongside sheep fields so not particularly great for off-lead running.
For the main loop there are several stiles but Hank got through or under them all just about. When you get to the railway bridge if you go through this does take you into some nice woodland and the stream section, but we got stuck at a stile that Hank had no chance of getting through and just had to come back so to avoid this just don't bother going under the bridge and continue past it.
It's pretty well signposted but lots of twists and turns to create the loop so definitely one for the GPS app too.
