Centurion Way is a cycle route between Chichester and West Dean following the line of part of the disused Chichester to Midhurst Railway. A tarmacked path that enabling all members of the public access, not only on bikes but disability scooters, to use it.
The path is under threat. I wanted to find out more and spoke to the Friends of Centurion Way. They are a community group that Intend to ‘Enhance and Preserve the Path for Everyone’.
The ‘Friends’ website says: The future of Centurion Way is uncertain. The southern end is at risk from a link road into the Whitehouse Farm development. Draft plans that the Developer has kindly shared with us show the path being routed down a long detour to make room for sports pitches on the west side of Centurion Way. A small diversion would be acceptable, but a major re-routing would not.
