'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.
