Parking: Whiteways, Bury Hill, Houghton, Arundel, BN18 9FD. What3words location – ///freezing.removers.calm

This walk starts by heading through beautiful woodland, before heading up towards Bignor Hill. Here there are views for miles and the walk then follows the South Downs Way before turning off and heading back down to the car park. There are no particularly steep sections, but there are a few gentle inclines and declines, and due to the ground being uneven in places, walking shoes are recommended. There are a few benches along the way, which make for perfect picnic spots.

Commence the walk by taking the path opposite the entrance to the car park, heading towards the woodland.
