Finding Footpaths

Circular Walks Around Midhurst



This brand new guide to the countryside around the market town of Midhurst reveals the very heart of the South Downs National Park through eight carefully crafted walking routes. Each route is designed to suit walkers of all abilities through the cleverly planned variations and suggested extensions. Innovative in its design and beautifully illustrated, this book is your best companion for exploring Midhurst and its surrounding countryside.


This book has been written by first time author, keen rambler, and local resident, Michele Facer. It is a completely new take on the traditional walking guides most of us are used to. Designed to be ‘a thing of beauty’ as well as highly practical, this book contains simply illustrated maps, stunning photography, and clearly articulated route guides. This is a book that is just as much at home in the pocket of your waterproof as it is on your coffee table. Novice walkers will feel confident in Michele’s capable hands, whilst the more experienced will be challenged by her love of a good long ramble and her extensive knowledge of local footpaths.

All the walks start and end in the Market Square in Midhurst, which means walkers get a good feel for the town as well as its surrounding countryside. The aim is to show the beauty of the National Park alongside the history and community that give the town its character. Striking a perfect balance between giving clear directions and sharing carefully chosen points of interest, the routes invite you to explore with your imagination and your heart, as well as with your feet.

This is a 21st century walking guide. It is accessible, easy to use and flexible. It is the guide Michele wishes existed for every town she has ever visited. Rapidly immersing you in a local area, without requiring you to read or search too long to find the things you are most interested in. In conjunction with the companion website you will find a completely new way of enjoying and exploring the countryside around Midhurst whatever your age, experience or existing knowledge of the area.
