Heritage Trails

Walking Through Steyning’s Past

The trail will lead you through Steyning’s ancient market town utilising the highways, byways and hidden twittens. The historic footways and buildings have been adapted over the years to suit our lives today, but the footprint of the past remains very much in evidence.   The trail will take around 1.5 hours.  Best to make sure you leave enough time to enjoy the many eateries found within the town, after completing the trail.

A Walk in the Adur Valley

This trail, of approximately 4 miles,  explores the fascinating story of how the communities around the village of Bramber exploited the River Adur, which  flows down to the sea and the surrounding lands, for originally medieval salt making and then the more recent cement industry, which is now no longer in operation.

Upper Beeding

To be found not far from Bramber Castle, Upper Beeding is a charming village that has much heritage of its own – from medieval salt making to providing refuge for fleeing nuns – making it an intriguing place to visit.  Beeding. as the village is known locally,  is mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) and formed part of the lands gifted by William the Conqueror to William de Braose, after the Norman Conquest in 1066.  This walk of around 2 hours, will highlight some of this wonderful history.
