Cissbury to Chanctonbury
Wednesday 7th June 2017 | 4 miles | Difficulty - Easy
Starting at Cissbury Ring we will explore the long and enthralling history of both monuments, from death rituals to flint mining. Some steep climbing to Cissbury but otherwise a gentle slope up to Chanctonbury, which is even gentler on the way down!

Clapham to Church Hill
Wednesday 14th June 2017 | 2 miles | Difficulty - Easy
Starting at Clapham Church we will walk through the beautiful woods before arriving at Church Hill to discuss the flint mining of the Neolithic.

Cross-dykes and Deserted Villages
Wednesday 16th August 2017 | 5 miles | Difficulty - Medium
Starting in Patching village, this walk will take us across the Downs through the Angmering Park Estate, above the deserted medieval village of Barpham and on to an enigmatic cross-ridge dyke.

Highdown Hill
Wednesday 23rd August 2017 | 2 miles | Difficulty - Medium
A shorter walk, though there’s still a climb! Meeting at Highdown Hill car park we’ll head to the top where we will explore the long and fascinating history of those who settled there, from Bronze Age farmers to Anglo-Saxon mercenaries!
