3 places left
Join Justin and Matt for a mid-week leg-stretch in the pretty rolling meadows and woods around Petworth.
This walk is a fairly easy walk exploring countryside to the west of Petworth. We take country paths and quiet lanes to meander for around 4 miles. We will end the offical ODL event back in Petworth.
We will end the walk at the beginning then move on to somewhere nearby for a drink and meal. I'm aiming for The Angel.
Distance: 4 miles approx.
Time:1.5 hours approx
Terrain: Footpaths and quiet lanes. Some short uphill stretches.

Water: bring at least a litre
Medicines: if you have hay fever, diabetes, minor ailments etc.
Rucksack: or any other bag
Footwear: hiking boots, sturdy trainers or wellies
Layered clothing: lets you quickly adapt to changes in the weather and body temperature. Go for a base layer (vest or t-shirt) and a mid layer (a micro fleece or shirt) and in cooler weather add an outer layer (a windproof jacket or thick fleece)

Sunglasses: for any sunny day, even in winter
Sun cream: can be useful even on cloudy and winter days

Food & drink
Bring something to snack on to keep you going if necessary. I hope to stop at the lovely Angel Pub in Petworth, a short walk out from the centre. I was very busy last year so we have other options if not. The pub stop is at the end so if you are unable to stop at the pub, you can go home.
