Step-by-step guide

  • From the car park there are several paths taking you onto Angmering park. Take the path going left off the private road towards a metal gate (1), and join a gravel lane (1a) with a fence on your right.
  • Follow the gravel lane up to a house and keep right (2).
  • Follow the path between the timberstacks (2a) and eventually you will come to a narrow turning by the cottages on the right (3).
  • At the end of the narrow woodland path turn right (4) and follow the path between the fields (4a).
  • When you reach the private tarmac drive turn right (5) and immediately left to continue the path with the hedge on the left (5a).
  • The path drops sharply and you will come to a main path where there is a stile and gate on the left into a copse (6). Cross the stile and after a short distance emerge into the landscaped lawns and paths of Angmering Park Stud Farm with the well-appointed house elevated on the left and a pond on the right.
  • Take the signposted gravel footpath to the right (7) and pass between farm buildings and through a gate (7a, 7b).
  • At a small paddock (8) leave the main track and bear right along the signposted grassy footpath into the woods (9).
  • Pass through the gap in the fence (9a) and then through another fence (9b).
  • When you reach the main gravel path, turn left (10).
  • Follow the wide path past the estate cottages (11), over the private lane. Soon you’ll reach a main junction of paths: turn left, walking away from the field (12).
  • Follow this path (12a) until you eventually retrace your first steps and reach the car park.
