This short circular walk explores the area around the village of Chidham. The area has a number of footpaths taking you to the shore and intertidal mudflats of Chichester Harbour. It's an interesting and attractive area with fine coastal views, plenty of wildlife and some nice countryside too.
This walk runs for just over 2 miles, starting from the village and taking you to the eastern coast of the peninsula. Here there are nice views over to Bosham with its pretty quay. The route then heads through the countryside to visit the picturesque Chidmere Pond, before passing Middleton Farm and returning to the start point.
