Angmering Circuit | Circular Walk | 6½m


This walk takes in woodland, scrub, downland and agricultural landscapes. There are some excellent views and a range of seasonal wildlife. There are also a range of archaeological features and stunning 360 degree views in the North East section. There are several seats and view points over a steep downland slope across to the top of the escarpment and the South Downs Way. Below you the buildings at Lower Barpham Farm are evident and the adjoining field has some historic earthworks, all that remains of a Deserted Mediaeval Village (DMV), presumably Lower Barpham.

This exhilarating walk follows high routes across the Downs, visiting the two historical sites of Chanctonbury Ring & Cissbury Ring, and provides excellent views in all directions.
