A 3.5 mile circular walk from the small pretty village of Slaugham (pronounced Slafam) in West Sussex. The route takes in the peaceful rolling countryside including an impressive old mill pond. There are great views throughout and a chance to visit the grave of the sister of Admiral Horatio Nelson.
The walk has a number of steady climbs and descents throughout. There is about one mile of walking along a quiet country lane and you will need to negotiate three stiles (all with dog-sized gaps underneath) and some kissing gates. The paths across the open fields and meadows can be quite muddy after rain and in winter. Old Park Farm is currently deserted (correct August 2014) and so the fields are deserted meadows with no livestock or crops to negotiate. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
Slaugham is located close to the A23, 7 miles south of Crawley. The walk starts and finishes from the centre of the village and there is parking available directly outside the church (St Mary's) or on the village roads. Approximate post code RH17 6AG.
