Photos from Noah’s Ark Walk

Mark has kindly supplied some photos taken on the recent “Noah’s Ark” walk. As noted in the report, an enforced change in the pub stop forced a rearrangement of the whole walk, so that it was done in reverse with an extra loop added to take in the new pub.

The first place we passed through was the oddly named “Limbo”, home to “Limbo Farm”.

We had some problems navigating through “Pheasant Copse” with its many routes but only one footpath. There was plenty of pleasant woodland to admire however.

Once out of the woods, we made our way across the the countryside to Lurgashall.

Here is a view of Lurgashall village green and the pub (Noah’s Ark) at which we were planning to stop. However, it is so popular that it was booked up for lunch time a week in advance!

We left Lurgashall to the south, and made our way to the lunch stop at Halfway Bridge, passing Lodsworth on the way.

Here is the lunch stop, the Halfway Bridge Inn. It serves excellent food.

We had already covered two thirds of the walk by lunch, so the afternoon walk did not take so long. We passed through some vinyards on the way.

We then entered Tillington, which features this fine church.

Finally, we made our way back to the start via Petworth Park, serenaded by the sound of rutting stags.
