Chichester Harbour

Walking around Chichester Harbour is always a joy. There are over 90km of public rights of way through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Many of these paths run right along the shoreline giving fantastic views of the water. Others cut across farmland and through the picturesque harbour villages. http://www.conservancy.co.uk/page/Walking/352/

Geocaching

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. There are many geocaches hidden in the Chichester area. Log onto their website for more details.  http://www.geocaching.com/

Kingley Vale (4 miles)

The Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve,  is a few miles north west of Chichester in West Sussex. The Reserve includes ancient woodland on Bow Hill. This reserve contains one of the finest yew forests in western Europe. There are trees here which are perhaps the oldest living things in Britain. The largest yew trees can be found at the foot of the valley. These trees may be 2000 years old. Their shapes are contorted by time and countless storms. Walking through the yew grove has been compared to walking through a cathedral.Kingley Vale

The Trundle (9 miles)

Trundle hill rises gently from East Lavant in the south; alternatively there’s a car park adjacent to the very top of it (the site of an ancient iron age hill fort), which is accessible from the Goodwood to Singleton Road. From the top of the trundle there are views towards Chichester and the surrounding area, the English Channel, the Solent and the Isle of Wight beyond. http://www.westsussex.info/trundle-view.shtml

The South Downs Way (11 miles)

The 160 kilometre long South Downs Way follows the old routes and droveways along the chalk escarpment and ridges of the South Downs. The route provides the visitor with the opportunity “to get away from it all” without having to travel too far in this busy part of England. The undulating route provides a wonderful trip for long distance riders as well as walkers. The closest point to the Millstream is the village of Cocking near Midhurst.  http://www.nationaltrail.co.uk/southdowns/
