SWC Free walk 128, Pulborough to Petworth. 25/5/13.
Around 16 miles of wonderful walking in a quieter part of the South Downs National Park. The first section of the walk is across a 'gallops' before walking alongside fields. Then, it's across The River Arun before some delightful woodland walking, and then past an old quarry. Soon, the walker comes to Shimmings Valley, for fine views of Petworth ahead, and lunch. Thereafter, there's a number of options around Petworth and it's National Trust owned House and Park. Depending on which one is taken, the walk can either be finished here, or, as in this case, continued back to Pulborough. The return leg incorporates some further wonderful views, often utilising 'The Serpent Trail'. There's a pleasant tea-time stop beside the medieval Stopham Bridge, if required, prior to a short wooded section, with great views, back to the station. Another corker of a walk, aided and abetted by some fine weather! Country Houses/gardens might not be for everyone, including this walker, but the rest of the walk amply compensates!
