Christ's Hospital to Horsham

Jane Rosoux writes...

"I attach photographs taken on today's 10 mile walk along the West Sussex Literary Trail from Christ's Hospital to Horsham led by Gill Henderson. There were eight in the party and the weather was very good.

The route took us past Itchingfield Church

....... with its Priest's House in its grounds....

Slinfold Church had been the intended lunch stop but we arrived too early - at 11.30 am. So we continued to Strood Green School where we picnicked in its extensive grounds. After lunch our route took us through a deer park and Warnham Estate, with a glimpse of Warnham Place in the distance. All too soon we were walking through the popular Horsham Park and the Carfax on our way to The Shelley Fountain...

Nearby was the fascinating Horsham Heritage Sundial

where the party split with some going for an earlier train whilst the rest of us enjoyed iced coffees.

The West Sussex Literary Trail (55 miles from Horsham to Chichester Cathedral) looked fascinating and Gill Henderson has offered to lead the rest of it for the Hampstead Group in 10-mile sections, one section per programme on Saturdays. She has also offered to lead most of the Serpent Trail, a 64-mile circuitous trail between Haslemere and Petersfield which links up heathland areas and is very scenic, for the group in 10-mile sections, one section per programme on Sundays.
