This promises to be an amazing walk, that as anyone who came last Easter is best done in the summer :) But this time we're out for both sections in one go.
We start at Pulborough, and follow the Arun River Valley which runs in to the South Downs hills. The villages are quaint and the countryside beautiful, there is a random little castle at Amberley and will detour down the drive to have a look, and there are lovely country pubs at the end of both stretches,
After Amberley we take in a short stretch of the river before heading over the hills to enter Arundel by walking past the much larger imposing castle high up on the hill, and carry on into Arundel where we stop at the Swan for or food/drinks.
