A 4 mile easy-access circular walk from Burpham in West Sussex, with stunning views over the Downs, across Arundel and beyond to the coast, with the Isle of Wight in the distance. The paths will be soft and muddy in places during the winter and wet weather. However, a key feature of this walk is that the only obstacles are three simple gates with no stiles, steps or kissing gates, making it a potential route for off-road rugged mobility scooters when the paths are firm and dry. No sheep or cattle were encountered when we did the walk. Allow 2 hours.

Burpham sits to the north east of Arundel. To reach the village leave Arundel in an easterly direction on the A27 and, shortly after passing over the railway bridge, turn left onto a road signed Warningcamp and Burpham. Drive for 3 miles, passing through the small village of Wepham en route. When you reach Burpham, turn left into the village. After 350 yards bear right as a small road goes off to the left. Then, after 100 yards, turn left immediately after The George public house. The road leads to a free public car park. The latitude and longitude of the parking is 50.869990,-0.523052 and the nearest postcode is BN18 9RR.

From the car park, walk back along the access road and turn right in front of The George public house. Walk back along the route that brought you by car into the village. That is, walk for 100 metres to bear left and walk a further 380 metres and bear right by a small triangle of grass, where a small road leads off to the left. Take care of traffic to now go downhill on a bend for 50 metres and, as the road turns further to the right, turn left into Coombe Lane. There is a 'Thank You' sign by the entrance to Coombe Lane although it is not apparent what for?

Walk for 500 metres on a rough but solid tarmac surface to a Southern Water facility on the right. Pass this and now continue on the same route, but now on a dirt track, for some 300 metres to reach a large wooden five bar gate with a smaller one to the right of it. (See image).

Start point: 50.8698 lat, -0.5238 long
End point: 50.8751 lat, -0.5076 long

Pass through the gate and continue on the same track. Ignore the right turn onto a footpath at a fingerpost after 200 metres, and continue ahead on the (also) signed bridleway.

Continue ahead for a further 1km to gate 2, which is a large wooden five bar gate with a smaller one to the left of it. (See image).

Gate 2 to Hollow

Start point: 50.8751 lat, -0.5076 long
End point: 50.8847 lat, -0.4961 long

Pass through the gate and continue ahead for a further 200 metres or so to exit the area at a crossroads of bridleways, with a four-way fingerpost on your right. Opposite is a double galvanised five bar gate with a small five bar gate to the right of it. Do NOT take this option but bear sharply left and follow a track gently downhill between two wire fences, with a newly planted hedge behind the right-hand one.

Walk downhill for just over 500 metres to a crossroads of tracks in a bit of a valley. There is a three-way bridleway fingerpost here.

Hollow to Village

Start point: 50.8847 lat, -0.4961 long
End point: 50.8797 lat, -0.5079 long

At this three-way fingerpost, turn left. It is a 'straight' 2km walk down this track back to the village. Curiously the track is named 'The Vicarage'. At the end of the track there is a large galvanised five bar gate, which was, and looks as if it is normally open. There is a small wooden five bar gate to the left of it if not.

Village to End

Start point: 50.8797 lat, -0.5079 long
End point: 50.8721 lat, -0.5182 long

On leaving the track you are back at the point where you left Burpham village earlier. There is a narrow road on the right and a triangle of grass to your left, with the road into Burpham beyond that. Do NOT take the narrow road to the right but go straight ahead to follow your route back through the village to the car park. That is, walk for 380 metres then turn right and walk for 100 metres to pass the George pub and turn left to return to the car park.

A very uninteresting walk in which you rarely see the lovely countryside.
