Kingley Vale

Total distance about 4.5 miles. Number of stiles: zero.

Meet at West Town car park at 9:15 to share cars. Drive to Stoughton (approx. 14 miles). Park in the parking area near the church at Stoughton grid reference SU 803114. We should start walking at about 10am.

I will book lunch at the Hare and Hounds Stoughton PO18 9JQ when I know numbers. Menu choices maybe required in advance.

We'll take the bridleway going SE and gradually uphill. Next take the second left bridleway NE, through Kingley Vale. After a while we will reach the “Devil’s Humps” - coffee stop. An optional climb up the burial mounds gives a stunningly good panoramic view of West Sussex. At bridleway “crossroads” we go straight over and continue walking through the wood. On reaching a Monarch’s Way sign, we turn sharp left and follow the Monarch’s Way downhill back to Stoughton for lunch.

This route is anti-clockwise starting from the parking area before Hare and Hounds, Stoughton.
