About this walk

Starting at the NT A272 Car Park (12 spaces) - the junction between the A272 and Woolbeding Lane - walk north-west across the down towards Whiphill Wood. Pass through the wood, go down hill half left towards the River Rother, enter the riverine meadow with poplars through a swing gate and turn west with a glimpse of Woolbeding House across the river. Circle round the large lake on the westward bank and, following the line of the river, climb gently uphill towards the A272 car park.

Alternatively, after leaving Whiphill Wood go down hill half right towards a gate near the River Rother and follow the path along the bank for a mile to the weir at Midhurst. Turn right at the main road and walk up North St for half a mile to June Lane. Turn right up June Lane and 400 yards later near the Half Moon Pub turn right down a right of way (footpath) which takes you back to the field adjacent to the A272 Car Park. This circular walk is called The Midhurst River Walk - more details available on the internet

This walk connects up with the Cowdray Park to Midhurst Old Town walk.

    Hello I am looking for a walk where there are no livestock, is this a place i can confidently go and not have to worry about him running over and barking till he loses his voice!! Or could anybody suggest a walk? i live in Horsham but am willing to drive to give him a good run. Thank you

    Woolbeding Parkland is made up of several large grassy and woody areas, each with its own enclosure. At the moment there are sheep in the enclosure closest to the A272 CP, but none in the Whiphill enclosure. Not sure about the lake enclosure or the field to the north of Whiphill Wood. The path goes into adjoining Cowdray woodland and finally reaches the weir in Link → should be plenty of opportunity to let your dog off the lead, but there may be others walking their Link → your dog is well behaved and not aggressive! Alternatively, park in the Cowdray A272 free CP near the Farm Shop and Cafe. Big - I mean huge - verges adjoin the estate road down to the castle. Lots of dog walkers follow the path along the river into the Old Town. Benbow Pond CP on the A272 is also a good spot as you can walk to the QE Oak which is 1000 years old and along the Midhurst Way via the new 60 tree lime avenue to Lodworth anf the Hollist Arms. Wonderful doggy walks country - but in some places you'll need to have your dog on a lead, elsewhere no lead atall. Look for Cowdray Park Walks in Google and The Midhurst River Walk. Also the Midhurst Way - the Midhurst end.

    Easy walking with points of interest along the way. Kids and dog enjoyed it too. Lots of Himalayan balsam near the river section tho. Town section was busy but could have diverted to nearby ruins for a slightly longer walk if had more time.
