Sat 2Leader: Sandy
Meet for 10am start at Emsworth Recreation Park car park on Horndean Road (B2148). GR. SU 747 067.
Distance: 10 miles – all flat, on firm tracks, paths and sea walls.
Details: ‘Sandy’s Childhood Haunts Walk’. Passing through Emsworth Brook Meadow Nature Reserve, we follow Lumley Road and Mill Lane (tracks) to Westbourne. From Westbourne we head for Woodmancote and then Hambrook on tracks, crossing the A27 on a footbridge, before following Ham Brook south on a footpath to Nutbourne. On the way we cross a railway line with quite high stiles on either side (the only stiles on the whole walk). A footpath takes us down to the coast, where we follow the sea wall around Prinsted to Thornham Marina (the tide will be in). Crossing two channels on safe, sturdy metal bridges, we briefly join the Sussex Border Path to reach Emsworth Yacht Harbour (yes, there is a boat theme here!). Heading north we regain Lumley Road and retrace our steps back to the car park.
