A circular walk with fantastic views of both the south coast and the South Downs! The walk starts from the pretty West Sussex village of Walderton with its superb pub, The Barley Mow. Starting with a short climb through a field up to Walderton Down, the route then takes you along a firm track with views to the coast. Then a long but gentle ascent up to Asdean Down where you will be rewarded with views of Chichester's cathedral and harbour. There's a chance to see some deer in the woodland whilst skirting the edge of Kingley Vale. Then suddenly you leave the woodland and find yourself on top of the open down with far-reaching views for miles around you. Climb to the top of the tumuli for an even better viewpoint! Enjoy the gentle descent down to the village of Stoughton, where there is another very good pub. Passing near to St Mary's, Stoughton's Saxon church, the Monarch's Way takes you along a track and then through open fields with yet more stunning views, arriving back into Walderton.
Those of you with dogs may find it useful to know that there are only four stiles and my Labrador, who cannot jump, managed them all with ease.
