Features

This walk starts with a climb up out of Amberley village and the Arun valley onto the crest of the South Downs following the South Downs Way (SDW) on a wide chalky track for 5km to Bignor Hill, with magnificent views.

Leaving the SDW, it descends to lunch at a remote rural pub, The White Horse Inn, Sutton (01798 869221)

In the afternoon it is flatter and more wooded Rother valley, coming to a tea stop in the White Heart Pub (01798 873321) by the lovely medieval bridge at Stopham.

Its a few km from there to Pulborough station - there is a shorter direct route along the road. NB There are no facilities near the station.
