West Chiltington and Nutbourne walk

This is a 6-mile circular journey through the gently rolling Sussex hills surrounding the idyllic village of West Chiltington, taking in a converted windmill, large sections of vineyard, great views, sheep pastures, old ponds, pretty woodland and a couple of village pubs along the way.

Access Notes

  • The walk includes several gentle gradients throughout, with just a couple of short steeper sections.
  • Some sections can get very muddy at times (so good boots are a must) and a few of paths are narrow making them prone to becoming overgrown in the summer growing season (so shorts are not recommended, unless you are immune to nettles!).
  • You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, some steps and 8 stiles. (Most of the stiles have large gaps alongside for dogs to pass through and the two stiles that have only small gaps are quite low, so larger dogs should be able to climb over).
  • You will be sharing several fields with sheep, so take particular care with dogs. You will also cross one field that may be holding cattle, but you literally step into the field and straight out again within the same corner, so the chance of encountering the cattle is very slim.
