Copsale and Nuthurst Walks (Black Horse Inn Walk No.4, PDF)
- 8 miles
- mostly level
- two pubs on route
A walk through woods, farms and fields taking in the villages of Copsale and Nuthurst, south of Horsham. The walk used to pass two pubs, The Bridge House Inn in Copsale, and the 17th century Black Horse Inn in Nuthurst. The former is no more and has apparently been demolished, though you may still spot the pub sign! The walk finishes on a short stretch of the Downs Link path on a disused railway. The Black Horse Inn grew out of three cottages built for estate workers attached to Sedgewick Park, a nearby hunting lodge used by Henry VIII.
The pub has more walks on its website.
