Having lived in the area for many years, I have never actually got around to having a walk across the flood plain towards Pulborough Brooks, so as Lucy was at work I decided to set off to see what it was all about.

Park in the car park next to the library just off Brooks Way, but make sure you get a ticket. It costs just £1.50 for up to 4 hours, Monday to Saturday, then head west across the carpark, down the steps and turn left, then follow the app.

This is a very easy walk, just over three miles with plenty to see along the river Arun, and fabulous landscape views across to Chanctonbury Ring and the south downs. Follow the river then turn towards the Pulborough Brooks Nature Reserve and carry on down to Wiggonholt where there is a very pretty small church. After the church you start heading back towards Pulborough and some welcome refreshment at either of the two pubs on this route.

When you get back to the main road, instead of following the walk on the app, turn right and you will find the White Horse (see the pub link below) a little way along on your left. If you want to keep following the app just carry on to the left along the footpath which take you back into Pulborough and the Oddfellows Arms (no website link) is right on the corner of Brooks Way where you started your walk.

This walk burns around 425 calories in about 6.25k steps.
