A circular, flat walk taking in all the beauty of this remote stretch of West Sussex coastline. Starting from The Old House at Home in Chidham, the route takes you to Cobnor Point which is part of Nutbourne Marshes Local Nature Reserve. This is owned by Chichester Harbour Conservancy and covers the northern and eastern parts of Thorney Channel, including the narrow islands known as North and South Stakes.
These islands are one of the most important wader roosts in the harbour and sometimes support nesting seabirds. The majority of the reserve is saltmarsh and mudflats which are internationally important habitats and support thousands of wildfowl and waders in winter.
Returning towards Bosham with lots of sailing boats to amuse you, there is a beautiful backdrop of the South Downs. Dog owners may find it useful to know that my Labrador managed this walk with ease - and thoroughly enjoyed himself!
Please check the tide times before leaving for this walk as Cobnor Point can be impassable at high spring tides. http://easytide.ukho.gov.uk/
