These mysterious woods are located in the Arun District of West Sussex, next to the village of Clapham. The woods are most well known for paranormal activity including several UFO sightings. They also have some nice public footpaths to follow through the woods. The woods are surrounded by some lovely Sussex countryside and have bluebells growing in the spring. There's parking available at the south western corner of the woods.

As you'd expect the woodland trails make for a nice dog walk so you'll probably see other owners on your visit.
Further Information and Other Local Ideas
To continue your walking in the area try the circular Worthing Walk. It visits the Iron Age fort at Cissbury Ring before heading across the South Downs to the 11th century ruins of Bramber Castle. Also near the wood is the fort at Chanctonbury Ring.
