A splendid circular walk with varied scenery, spectacular views and a good pub at the end! The walk starts from the pretty village of South Harting and climbs to The South Downs Way, with wonderful views of the Downs. Then a chance to see some deer through the forest along West Harting Down, after which the route drops back down to the South Downs Way with open views again. The Sussex Border Path takes you through woodland at the bottom of Torberry Hill, returning through open fields back to South Harting's ancient church. Those of you with dogs may find it useful to know that there are no stiles to cross and my Labrador managed this walk with ease.

Chose this walk for my birthday (16/4/14) and it couldn't have been better (of course the weather helped!). The instructions and photos were very clear. One note: at WP 5 the fingerpost is missing, but we found our way perfectly - even without a black dog to point the way.

Very enjoyable walk. My wife and I and our dog completed it in just over two hours including a break. Great views and a pint at the end. Can England get any better?

Five stars for this one. Free parking, so a good start. Varied views from open farmland to secret wooded tracks you would not even know existed that must look fantastic in spring and summer, most enjoyable. Walk completed mid-November after a few days of torrential rain and all paths passable with adequate walking boots, bit muddy in places but just walk on the edge and you will be ok. There are no stiles so a very good dog walk. Ended up at an excellent pub in the village named The White Hart Inn located in the High Street where we received a warm, friendly welcome, ate homemade proper food that was excellent (no ping ding food here)and collapsed on an amazing comfy sofa infront of a log burner. Can a day get any better, not really? Information about the pub can be found at
