As a result of the huge success of the series of leaflets featuring four walks in the Steyning & District area, the Steyning & District Community Partnership Visitor and Tourism Group embarked on a project to improve a section of the existing footpath alongside the River Adur, which forms part of the route of the Three Ancient Churches Walk.
Thanks to the support of West Sussex County Council; South Downs National Park and Bramber Parish Council we were able to improve the surface and gradients to make this section suitable for people with impaired mobility, wheelchairs, mobility scooters, pushchairs and walkers.
The route offers wonderful views of the South Downs, being in the National Park. The constantly changing scene along the river is a perfect habitat for many plants, birds and insects. Illustrated boards along the route, which were funded by Leader and Bramber Parish Council, offer more detail of the landscape, with information and photos supplied by Shoreham District Ornithological Society.
Along with this glorious walk, the Village of Bramber has lots more to offer visitors, including historic St Mary’s House and Gardens, the ruins of Bramber Castle; hotels, restaurants and pubs.
Although maybe not suitable for all, the other 4 walks within Steyning & District are also a joy.
