Wakefield Way Douglas Cossar (Ramblers' Association, West Riding Area, 2005)
'Walberton was a flourishing village in Saxon times with a population of 35 men and their families at the time of the Domesday survey. It is situated just to the south of the South Downs. The north-east of the parish, Rewell Wood, is within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ... The village is surrounded by attractive countryside bordering on the South Downs with a number of footpaths that give plenty of attractive walks through woods and farmland, although, to the south, horticultural nurseries have taken an increasing share of the land in recent years.'
