Walk description may contain detailed information on the start point for this walk.
Not only one of the few remaining undeveloped coastal areas in Southern England, but rarer still, Chichester Harbour remains relatively wild. Its bright wide expanses and intricate creeks are at the same time a major wildlife haven and among some of Britain's most popular boating waters. Backed by the South Downs, the harbour is a series of tidal inlets, with a narrow mouth to the sea, punctuating areas of fertile farmland. Fringed by a narrow margin of wind-sculptured oaks and hawthorn, the fields in turn give way to salt-marsh and intertidal mud-lands, broken by a maze of creeks and rithes. Chichester Harbour Walking Guide
West Sussex lies in Southern England and offers a variety of scenic interest including Wealden, downland and coastal. The highest point of the county is Blackdown, at 280 metres (919 ft). Over half of West Sussex is protected countryside including part of the South Downs National Park and the Chichester Harbour National Landscape (formerly AONB). The most important long-distance footpath is the South Downs Way National Trail.
