Longer walk: Graffham

This is a 7¼ mile walk that starts in the Lavington Common and Plantation car park, GU28 0QL (see map). From the A285 turn off, the car park is 1¼ miles on the right just after a left-hand bend.

The 'Fancy Free Walks' web site describes the walk:

This walk is pure innocent pleasure, taking you through the commons and heathland around the West Sussex villages of Graffham and Selham.

There are very few nettles to be found on this walk, so shorts should be wearable. We found two watery sections not long after the start of the walk, after which the course was dry; so boots are recommended, at least in winter. Your dog can certainly come with you on this walk; one or two of the stiles have no dog gate but most are easily negotiable.

We will meet to car share at 9.15 in the West Town car park.

I suggest a packed lunch. In Graffham (where we finished last month's walk) there are two pubs on the route where we can stop for refreshments towards the end of the walk.

This is the planned route:
