Fulking Walk (National Trust)
- 2 miles
- Short steep ascent at the beginning and in the middle.
- Shepherd & Dog at Fulking
- Accessible by bus if you walk down the hill from Devil’s Dyke (slightly longer walk); this also makes for a good extension to the walk
This short 2 mile circular walk starts from The Shepherd & Dog at Fulking, a wonderfully situated pub right under the Downs near Devil’s Dyke.
The pub has a very attractive garden with a stream running through it. The stream’s source is a downland spring. Just beside the pub, look out for the public tap and horsetrough with a tiled inscription from a psalm in honour of the leading Victorian art critic and patron, John Ruskin.
The path up to the Downs starts from a path adjacent to the garden. At the top, take in the spectacular views across the Downs.
