Slow Ways linking Chichester and Bognor Regis, Emsworth, Midhurst, Selsey, Westergate

Progress towards triple-checked route options for Chichester’s five Slow Ways: 50%

Help connect Chichester

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Chichester’s Slow Ways.

Walk this route

You leave Chichester by following the canal south to Hunston. The path splits with one path going due south towards the North Wall on Pagham Harbour. The Sel-Chi path heads south west towards Halsey Farm....

It is better to follow the canal into (or out) of Chichester from Hunston, following the initial part of the route to Selsey (SelChi) rather than through Whyke. It makes for a nicer route into/out of the city than using residential streets....

Walk this route

Unpleasant walking on busy roads south of Goodwood Triangle carpark SU87951134. There are much quieter routes into Chichester on the other side of the Trundle...

Walk this route

This route follows the Chichester Harbour coastal footpath as much as possible, with lovely views of the harbour inlets. The footpath at Fishbourne is tidal at peak high tides....

Walk this route

A really quiet route from Chichester to Selsey which keeps well away from the major roads that cross this area. From Hunston the route follows farm tracks and little-used lanes through wide open fields past South Mundham to the edge of Pagham Harbour at Sidlesham Quay....

Walk this route

This is followed by a section walking along Vinnetrow Road which is a busy rat run with no pavements and very narrow verges. A short section walking alongside the busy road seems to be unavoidable on the current route....

As for the route, we struggled to find the connection between Dallaway Road and Whyke Road. Other than this the routemap was roughly accurate (apart from the weird diversion up Palmer Place, which we ignored!) Overall, we found the route to be a quick and quiet way to get from Chichester to Bognor, so in that respect it succeeds :) (i took pics but can't get them from phone to laptop and can't login to site from phone for some reason - not recognising the password and Chrome password saving isn't working either)....
