Join well-known Sussex blogger, Kathryn, on a leisurely two and a half hour guided walk in the Sussex countryside through the beautiful Halnaker Tree Tunnel to the iconic Halnaker Windmill.
If you fancy a leisurely walk in the beautiful Sussex countryside and along an ancient hollow way known as the Halnaker Tree Tunnel, then Kathryn from Sussex Walks has a special 3-4-mile walk for you.
You’ll start your walk in a village just a ten-minute drive (20 minutes by bus) north of Chichester. On your way, you’ll pass by a local vineyard, cross into the South Downs National Park and tread in the footsteps of Romans and royalty.
After a short walk uphill, you’ll come to the striking sight of Halnaker Windmill, built in 1740, where you’ll have time to admire the 360° views of the glorious Sussex countryside. On a clear day you can sometimes see The Isle of Wight from here.
During your Halnaker tree tunnell walk, you’ll learn about Boxgrove Man (the oldest human remains ever found in England), see a nearby Neolithic settlement, discover the WWII radio direction-finding structures, and hear local folktales. You’ll even learn a little Sussex dialect.
The walk starts and ends at a traditional country pub that’s over 200 years old. the pub has a large beer garden with plenty of shade-giving trees and plenty of free parking. Refreshments not included.
