This year's Festival Walk led by Jonathan Golden will start in Tillington at the edge of Petworth Park. The walk takes us into the Park and, by kind permission of the Leconfield Estates, on through the Estate towards Lurgashall, and back down to Tillington through River Common with beautiful views of the surrounding area and the South Downs towards Midhurst. The terrain is gentle with some hills over this rewarding seven-mile walk.
There is free parking outside the Village Hall. Tea and cake donated by Tiffins Tearoom can also be purchased at the Village Hall at the end of the walk with all proceeds going to local charities.
The walk itself is free, and will be on wet or fine! Boots recommended. Dogs who don't wander off are welcome.
