Overview

'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.

You can explore away from the canal in all directions, however, including this selection of walks in the Audlem area.'

Overview

'Riverside walks never fail to be interesting, as rivers are havens for wildlife of all sorts and anything could drift past. Colourful narrowboats, shy waterbirds, the splash of a fish, eerie reeds as they sway in the breeze, if you stay alert all sorts of sights and sounds will delight you. These two fully waymarked walks along the River Avon will not disappoint, whatever time of year you visit. There are no stiles to negotiate on either walk.'

'Circular route around the county town of Aylesbury, never very far from the town but mostly in quiet and peaceful rural countryside.'

'Four walks in the countryside in and around the villages of Aylesford, Blue Bell Hill and Eccles and connects the woodlands of Walderslade with the woodlands south of the M2.

This Trail is part of the [former] Valley of Visions Community Trails project, encouraging people to enjoy, explore and learn about their local area and surrounding countryside.'

Note that a PDF of the 'Aylesford Community Trail' no longer seems directly accessible via the Parish Council Website; nor via the Kent Downs AONB Site. But a Google search of the Title at the time of Review [12 February 2016] generated an archival PDF from the Kent Downs Site.
