The car park on this walk is quite remote so please check your route before setting off and give yourself plenty of time to find it!! As a guide, if you're coming from the north, go past the ramshackled Redford Garage on your right on Linch Road and then ignore a small National Trust car park also signed as Woolbeding on your right - don't get confused with this one!!), soon after, take the next road on the left (it's very sharp, almost back on yourself and goes up a steep hill. The car park is at the top of this hill. If coming from the south on Linch Road, this road is signposted as Older Hill on your right.
This is a walk of haunting beauty in the fascinating and complex hills and moorlands of West Sussex.
The walk takes in Titty Hill (named after the birds, not the shape of the hill), the Hammer Pond, a Buddhist Retreat and the villages of the Rother Valley. We also visit Henley and the woodlands that surround it.
Our pub stop is towards the end of the walk in Henley, in the form of the lovely Duke of Cumberland so you will need to bring a packed lunch.. There are some nettles and scratchy undergrowth in the woodland near Redford and, in high summer some thick ferns and nettles on the path to Stedham, so consider this if wearing shorts!. Because of the gradients and rough - and occasionally damp - terrain, you will be most comfortable wearing boots.
