This beautiful circular walk is full of interest. First there is The Folly, an amazing construction now owned by the National Trust, which could not have served any useful purpose at all! However the views from here are quite stunning. The walk then takes you into woodland where you may be lucky and see some deer and then leads you to Stane Street. This is no ordinary street, but a road built by the Roman Army in the 1st century AD, connecting London and Chichester. The only traffic that you will find on it now is walkers and sheep! Passing through the remote Gumber Farm you will then have a lovely downhill walk, with breathtaking wrap-around views of the coastal plain and the English Channel along with the downlands. Although a little muddy in places, the walk takes you along well-defined tracks and field-paths with no roads at all.
