If you would like a short easy walk head along Mouse Lane…. this runs from Steyning High Street to Wiston House. It is just around the corner from Rosebud Cottage and can be seen in my photo.
There are several footpaths going off Mouse Lane which you can explore. You’ll find a more challenging one on the left that leads up to Chanctonbury Ring
Do watch out for traffic as cars drive along the lane.
The Downs Link Path
If you are would like a longer walk on mainly level paths The Downs Link path could be just right for you. It goes between St Martha’s (near Guildford in Surrey) and Botolphs (near Bramber and Steyning) following old railway routes for most of the way. Where the route ends at Botolphs it joins the South Downs way and The Coastal Link path to Shoreham by Sea.
The route passes through a variety of countryside areas well worth seeing and at Loxwood it is very near the Wey and Arun Canal.
The route is approximately 36 miles long and is suitable for walking, cycling and horses riders.
