North-West Horsham & Warnham
walk begins on Redford Avenue, opposite Spencers
Place, but walkers from other parts of the town can
reach the start point via the Riverside Walk.
The main circuit is just short of 5 miles and takes us
over the Red River, under the by-pass, through
parkland & farmland into the centre of Warnham
village, and back via a disused road that used to be
optional detour to Warnham Nature Reserve, which is
half a mile from the start point, and even if time
doesn't allow a visit to the reserve, there's a very
good café in the visitor centre. Refreshments
are also available at the Sussex Oak, Warnham, which
we pass on our way through the village.
There's a good
view of the town centre buildings from the far side of
Warnham Deer Park, and from the hill above Warnham
village you can see as far as the South Downs.
