Help connect Storrington

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 Storrington’s Slow Ways.

The route passes through Pulborough Brooks RSPB reserve in the flood plain of the River Arun. It also passes three interesting churches at Wiggonholt, Pulborough and Stopham. At Pulborough, rather than walking along the main road to the station, I'd take the footpath opposite Allfreys Wharf up the hill to Old Rectory Lane then head to the church, crossing the A29 there then heading down Church Place to meet the plotted route by the bridge over the railway line....

There was a short muddy section at the end of Downsview Avenue , however most of the route was along either all weather paths or quiet lanes with minimal traffic....

A nice little route, and definitely an improvement on Wessto one. Walked this on 14/10/23....

It's an ok short route but as others have commented the sections where you';re walking along verges to avoid being on the busy road aren't nice. WesSto 2 is nicer, recommend using that, but this is not actually dangerous provided you're not tempted to walk on the road....

This is a lovely walk, along the Arun valley and up, over and back down the South Downs into Storrington (I actually did it in reverse, on 11/11/23)....

Walk this route

It is long though (I clocked it at 22.66 km), and it's odd that Pulborough isn't a SlowWays Place - it's bigger than Storrington and would make a good stopping off point. As the first review says though, there are lots of places which might be waterlogged, notably the RSPB at Pulborough Brooks and could then be impassba,.e, but easy to find routes around....

Walked this route on 9/10/23. It's a nice route for getting up and over the South Downs, "cutting off the corner" of the A283 and A24 and ending in Findon which is a lovely little place.....

At the Storrington end the route (for both StoSte1 and StoSte2) goes through a dangerous narrow road with no pavement at the intersection of Browns Lane and Church Street so I took a slightly different route which is much safer and indeed more direct....

The route joins, leaves then rejoins the South Downs Way before getting to Chanctonbury Ring, an old pre-historic hill fort, planted with beech trees in the 18th century, then replanted at the end of the 20th century following the devastation of the Great Storm of 1987. From the ring, the route follows the SDW for another mile or so before branching off to take a path off the Downs straight into the village of Steyning....

At the top of the hill, the route touches the South Downs Way by a small barn before heading off eastward along a fenceline to reach a gate and a track after about half a mile. At the A280, the route picks up the Monarch's Way which it follows along the bottom of a hill, past a small camp site, the church and Findon Place to the A24 then across to the village of Findon....

This is a quiet and very picturesque route following footpaths and bridle paths across fields and through woods staying at the bottom of South Downs scarp. Saying that, STOSTE One will also be a good route which climbs up onto the Downs and passes Chanctonbury Ring....

This is a fantastic route which I have reviewed in full on route ARUSTO Two. The issue with ARUSTO One is as described by the previous reviewers. The bridleway as marked on the OS map does not exist on the ground....

The final section along the levee bank of the River Arun into the town is a beautiful finale. From the foot of Kithurst Hill, the route is straight up. The route itself from the top of the climb now descends gently for three or four miles to the village of Burpham....

This quite a long route mostly on footpaths and bridleways. There are a couple of pubs at the Petworth end, and the White Hart at Stopham Bridge is a good halfway point....

Lovely route out of Storrington but the way along the River Stor and around Fryern Park can be very muddy after wet weather. The final section, along Common Hill can be busy with traffic and is a bus route....
