A lovely circular walk starting from what was the White Horse at Chilgrove. This is another lost country pub but it will be shortly opening as a The Fish House. See Additional Information. The route starts with climbing gently along a delightful track through yew trees. You then walk along the crest of the down with magnificent wrap around views of the coast and the South Downs. Passing by the tranquil village of East Marden with its Norman church, you then drop down to the isolated hamlet of Hooksway, where you will find the Royal Oak, an excellent country pub that welcomes walkers and serves good food and excellent beers.
Then you walk through Phillis Wood where you will see only young trees. This is because the area was flattened during the 1987 storm, but nature has made it beautiful once more. The route is varied, with a mixture of tracks, field-paths, woodland and open downland, with a quiet country lane leading you back to Chilgrove.
