The walk starts from the tranquil country village of East Dean with it's lovely country pub, The Star and Garter. Here you can expect excellent food and beers, along with a warm welcome. Starting with a climb along the down with excellent views, the walk then takes you through woodland to the edge of the Goodwood Country Park. Passing through here you are then met with far reaching views of the coastal plain towards Bognor as well as views towards the Halnaker Windmill. There is then a delightful track through the Open Winkins forest where you may well see some deer. When I walked through here it was far too hot for deer but I was well rewarded with a host of different species of butterflies amongst the wild flowers along the track edge. Emerging from the woodland onto the down you are met with lovely views of East Dean as you descend back to the village. Here you will find a delightful 13th century church and The Star and Garter. All are welcome here including kids and dogs, although dogs are not allowed in the restaurant area.
Those of you with dogs may find it useful to know that my Labrador, who is slim, fit and cannot jump, managed all the stiles easily.
