Kingley Vale
Kingley Vale

This walk is another classic, but this time a classic walk onto the South Downs.  It is basically a walk to the top of a hill where you can see far out to sea and to Chichester in one direction, and back into the rolling downs in the other.

Kingley Vale is a National Nature Reserve, and has its own network of walking trails and bridleways.  It has two major claims to fame (apart from the fantastic views from the top) the first is the ancient yew tree plantation, that contains some trees that date back two thousand years - some of the oldest living things in England.

It is also has tumli dating back to pre-history - a perfect viewing platform.
