A circular walk through farmland, heathland and woodland, much of the woodland in particular rarely visited and with abundant wildlife; there is every chance of seeing deer. There is a little climbing to be done, but nothing too strenuous (and the superb views along the top of some of the hills make it worthwhile!) Signposting of public footpaths and bridleways, even in the most isolated sections, is good. The paths near Midhurst (Cowdray Castle ruins, polo grounds and golf course) are well-used but most of the remainding paths are quiet.

This walk was originated by Martin O'Keeffe. Walkingworld is delighted to welcome Keith and Ing-Marie Beldam as the new contributors now taking care of Martin's walks from May 2014. Walkingworld, admin and members, would like to say a huge thank you to Martin for all his excellent contributions over the years.

This is a very nice walk, even on a gloomy late summer day after a lot of rain! However, a large fallen tree branch (the size of a small tree) has caused a considerable hazard between waypoints 31 and 32. It's fallen on a narrow, steep part of the track and - to compound the problem - the soil is very crumbly underfoot. We gingerly negotiated our way around it by hanging on to the branches, but you might be safer heading further up the hill. There's a smaller tree hazard on the path between Verdley Farm and Henley (between waypoints 21 and 22) but this is negotiable.

We did this walk on 5th May 2014. Have to say its one of the best we have done inland. There were plenty of changes in landscape a few hills to get a sweat on and some really nice pubs with excellent views. Would not reccommend during wetter months as there are areas that can get very boggy. Directions are plentyful and spot on. Did not see one other person along the way except for start and finish. reccommend this walk highly
