The Chichester Canal Walk 12th November 2009

A pleasant 3 miles stroll along the canal from Hunston to Chichester basin and back again. This walk has several advantages, it is quite flat, it is virtually impossible to get lost and there is nice picnic area at the end with loos.

Parking is easy in Hunston car park, to find it from the A27 Chichester by pass follow the B2145, at the first roundabout turn right staying on the B2145 to Hunston, the car park is along there on the right hand side of the road, a 100 yards or so before the second roundabout.

Below are a few pictures of the route.
