The Category Chichester is a subset of Sussex.


The following Chichester Entities do NOT (currently) have Records in 'Open Paths and Trails'. Here, clicking on a Title of interest should link you to a relevant external Website (or Facebook Page):

- Burton and Chingford Ponds Nature Reserve

- Walking for Health - Chichester


'Walking around Chichester Harbour is always a joy. There are over 90km of public rights of way through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Many of these paths run right along the shoreline giving fantastic views of the water. Others cut across farmland and through the picturesque harbour villages.'


'Situated close to the historic city of Chichester, Selsey offers close access to some of the top wildlife destinations on the South Coast. It lies at the heart of the RSPB nature reserves at Pagham Harbour and Medmerry and via a series of linked paths is only a stones-throw from the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at Chichester Harbour.' Usually held Late May.


'The Arun and Rother Connections (ARC) Project  'is a landscape-scale project being delivered by a partnership made up of seven organisations. The main aim of the project is to promote a rich and thriving river system where wildlife flourishes and where people value and enjoy the landscape and natural and cultural heritage of the Arun and Rother rivers and their surrounding environment in West Sussex ... The River Rother flows from Empshott in Hampshire, England, to Stopham in West Sussex, where it joins the River Arun.' The Project is now closed and unfortunately I could no longer find details of the ARC Explorer Trails on their Website.

The path connects with the Bill Way at Hunston and Salterns Way at Birdham, which are long-distance cycle routes to the sea. There are information boards along the canal and also historical remains of the original navigation, including Poyntz Bridge near the basin and the Selsey tramway abutment at Hunston.'

'This is a peaceful mainly woodland walk through one of the wildest nature reserves in south east England. It runs through the hilly country just north of the village of Fittleworth, taking you along little-known paths, visiting the cottage where Elgar composed many of his later works, with fine views and refreshments in the village.
