This is a 7.2 mile walk with hills and glorious views across the South Downs. We will start from the Harting Hill car park map ref (4)791 (1)181 at 10am. Parking is free for National Trust members and £3 all day for non-members. There is a sign with instructions for paying by phone*. We walk via Beacon Hill and Pen Hill then turn South towards Hooksway. We can have refreshment/lunch and civilised loos at the Royal Oak as there is a distance of only 2.8 miles remaining afterwards.
Paths are mostly good and there are only two stiles. We can walk at a leisurely pace especially on hills and pause for admiring views and having drinks and energy top ups.
I suggest we meet in the Community Centre car park to lift share in time for a 9am departure.
Will update nearer the time as covid relaxation, weather and provision at the Royal Oak dictate.
