No items found.

Parking

Space for several cars in the lay-by off the A285, by the entrance to Denge Lane. The start of the walk is sign-posted from here past Warehead Farm.

Terrain

Paths are very flat here, and whilst the walk all the way to the windmill is an uphill incline, it's not particularly steep. Couple of stiles, but Hank didn't have a problem getting over or under they're not too bad, and some kissing gates too.

Water

No water here.

Poo Bins

General waste bin in the lay-by where you park.

Local Features

The recently renovated grade II listed windmill dates back to the mid 18th century, and the path leading to it is part of an old Roman road.

About My Walk

The windmill is an iconic part to the scenery around Chichester, and this is a lovely walk up to it. From the parking spot you walk past a couple of stone cottages and up the tree-lined pathway which in itself is a picturesque feature of the walk creating a tunnel beneath the curved canopy.

After a while there's a turn-off to the left that takes you up through the wheat fields to the Windmill which you'll see pretty soon. There's no access to the windmill itself, but there is an enclosed field around it which you can go into, and as you walk around this there are far reaching views in all directions. It was a horribly wet day today so my photos don't do it justice, but if you head there on a clear day it's quite stunning and there's some benches too so a great spot for a picnic.

If you want a longer walk, there are plenty of other paths to take once you're back down the hill from the Windmill. It was quiet today so Hank enjoyed the majority of the time off the lead but is a popular spot so can be busier on nicer days.
