Head south past the tennis courts and the church, down Blackgate Lane, across Neptown and the Rothery. Cross the main road at the top of Barrow Hill and continue along the Lidds, turning downhill before Hoedean Farm as far as the main road, then go up the field alongside the road – no path – until reaching the footpath opposite New Barn Lane.
Continue down this path across the golf course and Oreham Common, eventually reaching the bridleway at Lower Edburton Barn and Edburton Sands. Keep heading due south across the road and climb steeply up to Edburton Hill. At the top turn left along the SDW past Devil’s Dyke and bear left along the SE rim of the Dyke down to Poynings, cross the road and continue down until reaching the road again. Cross it and go past the Old Schoolhouse and bear north across the field until Rushfields roundabout.
Head NE across the fields as far as the Newtimber road, go down the road past the church and bear right at the end to join the cycle path parallel to the A23. Follow the cycle path north up the old disused main road, across the road and alongside the former A23. Turn left just before Breechlands along a tarmac driveway, then right and left past the golf course, up the hill and through Albourne Place Farm. Straight over the road, down the hill and turn right, then left to reach Blackstone. Cross the road and then along Furners Lane back to the village.
About 14.5 miles and 1,300 feet of ascent
