Longer walk: Thorney Island

This is a longer walk of about 8.5 miles. It starts in the main car park in Emsworth. From there we'll walk on the allowed path around Thorney Island and back to the car park via a suitable hostelry on the way.

The date might change if the weather is bad. Please check back here before joining the walk.

Please bring plenty to drink, something for a mid-morning break, and a packed lunch.

I intend to cycle to the start. I suggest everyone else meets in West Town car park (as usual for the monthly walk) to arrange car share leaving at 9.15. We'll start the walk as close to ten as possible. I expect to get back to the pub around 3pm.

We'll be at the southernmost point at around low tide which should - hopefully - give us a view to basking seals. You might want to bring some binoculars.

This is the route I plan to follow...
