Exploring The Serpent Trail from Fittleworth in West Sussex

Today I am exploring a special and fascinating long distance trail that runs through the heart of West Sussex.

The Serpent Trail is a 64-mile long distance footpath. It runs from Haslemere to Petersfield, which are 11 miles apart in a straight line, by a route which is designed to join up the many heathland areas on greensand in the western Weald. The path takes its name both from its serpentine shape and from passing through habitat of all three British species of snake (adder, grass snake and smooth snake).

I have joined the trail half way through at Fittleworth and I am heading north.My videos are funded 100% by people like you. If you enjoy them, please help me make more: https://www.paypal.me/RichardVobes

The Wide Water Beach Splash Around in Lancing

Julia and I have decided to explore the local scenery close to us. Julia lives near the Wide Water Lagoon in Lancing, West Sussex, and the shingle beach beyond. We thought it was worth a short exploration because when we started the weather wasn’t great and I was keen to demonstrate the sheer drama of the slate skies and the thundering seas. The weather improved as the walk went on, although we both got more damp the longer we stayed.

From St Mary’s to Heswood Common in Fittleworth

Julia and I are still exploring the area around Fittleworth in West Sussex. Our walk today takes us from the beautiful parish church of St Mary’s, up over an old sand quarry, which now appears to be a bowling Green and on to the delightful, part wooded, part open, Hesworth Common. The pinnacle of the walk is the arrival at the viewing bench beside the Trig point. The view up here is breathtaking.

Exploring Fittleworth Village in West Sussex


Today I have teamed up with Cynthia Julian to explore a short piece of woodland that leads to a manicured golf course, hidden away from sight in this area of West Sussex inhabited by large houses and millionaires.

We are in Monkmead Woods in West Chiltington where soldier camped in the second world war and fairly recently a grenade was discovered by a dog walker. Sadly for us, the weather turned nasty and we had to stop filming, but we managed a few hundred yards through the heather and sand. I hope you enjoy it.
