A nice long route down a river, with two pubs!
This is an amazing stretch along the banks of the river Arun winding through the legendary Arun valley, with magnificent views.
The valley of Arun has a unique habitat rich in wildlife and biodiversity. The valley features undisturbed wet grassland surrounded by woodlands. Some of the species who call Arun valley home are kingfishers, warblers, dragonflies, glow-worms, grass snakes, water shrews and water voles.
More beautiful scenery is very hard to find and natural environment can only be described as epic.
(The pubs are not bad either).
